Month Ahead - September

Annnnd the heaven open once again to welcome us into September! (for those still holding out for an Indian Summer, don’t lose faith. Just yet.)  We are all feeling in a relatively glass half full frame of mind. As is the industry, it transpires.. From Turkey to Portugal; Chile to New Zealand – we’re trotting into Autumn in a most global manner. (& should the aforementioned seasonal sunshine not descend, perhaps some tastebud-teleportation will)

The wine world is bursting with options this month.  So much so, we’d be hard-pressed to list them all – feels like a good month to expand respective wine knowledges in earnest. Good thing cellars are well-protected against the elements..
