    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 21 – 2019 Vintage

        "As bars and restaurants across the U.K. empty, thanks to COVID-19, the recycling bins of the population fill up and none could be fuller than those of Jason and David both, coincidentally, returned from holidays in more benign climes and obliged to quarantine at Her Majesty's pleasure in their respective domiciles. But rather than spend their house arrest...

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 20 – Summer Reds

        "As temperatures (and tempers) heat up during lockdown, we've all learned that wine isn't the only thing that's gotta breathe. For this second socially-distanced wine tasting, however, Jason has lined up a flight of reds, that after a cool start, will simply warm up in your glass. Each made from a single variety grape, they're perfect for summer...

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 19 - Vegan Wines

        "In what can only be described as a technological breakthrough for our bibulous pair, Jason and David zoom their way through their first socially distanced wine tasting, pulling off the unprecedented feat of opening the same white at the same time for a spot of synchronous sipping. The pandemic aside, with two woke sons on his quaranteam and...

    Posted On: February 17th, 2020

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 18 - Adventures in White

        "In this big, bonging, New Year edition, Jason introduces David to the Rhône Septentrionale (or Northern Rhône) and the handful of rare and characterful white wines that are teased into existence alongside the ever abundant rows of generic Côtes du Rhône AOC. While David's head is still spinning with percentages, hectares and Olympic-sized swimming pools (not to mention...

    'Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 17 - Feeling Festive?

        "In this special, holly-decked edition, Jason begins by asking David the obvious question and despite receiving the rather obvious answer, presses ahead regardless with a bumper, eight-bottle sampling of his own Christmas wine choices that is guaranteed to get even the most diehard humbug ding-dong-merrily-on-high. Sure enough, David's soon getting teary-eyed over a pocket-sized, half-bottle of Léon Beyer...

    Posted On: September 13th, 2019

    ‘Adventures In Wine’ podcast, episode 16 – The Hérault

        “After a long summer break, Jason, the man with ‘the most embarrassing recycling box in the street,’ is ready to pile on even more embarrassment for the furtherance of oenological knowledge and David is more than willing to help him. With their feet firmly under Jason’s kitchen table and ISO wine glasses under their noses, Jason whisks the...

    Posted On: May 17th, 2019

    ‘Adventures In Wine’ podcast, episode 15 – The 2018 Vintage

        "2018. How was it for you? The vignerons of France may trumpet it as an historic vintage, but Jason being determined to find out for himself, marshals five newly-minted bottles of white, rosé and red and inveigles the ever-obliging David to figuratively hold his jacket while he gives them all a thorough going over. The Domaine De l'Idylle...

    Posted On: March 18th, 2019

    ‘Adventures In Wine’ podcast, episode 14 - Small Appellations

        "David's excitement at another bibulous session, Chez Yapp, is mitigated somewhat by Jason's announcement that the theme for the podcast is small appellations. After his first sip of the morning, however, he realises with great relief, that the next twenty minutes will be more hedonism than hectares. Jean Luis Thiers' Saint-Peray 'Tranquille' is nutty, fruity yet dry, with...

    Posted On: February 6th, 2019

    Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 13 - In Praise of Châteauneuf-du-Pape

        "In the very teeth of winter, Jason and David battle all the way to the wine cellar in search of bottled sunshine; to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in fact, historical home to the Avignon Popes in exile, a recent ruin, some very big pebbles and thirteen varieties of grape, all of which are permitted into a single bottle of France's finest...

    Posted On: December 10th, 2018

    Adventures In Wine' podcast, episode 12 - Jason's Christmas Line-up 2018

        "In this edition, Jason proposes his line-up for Christmas 2018, while David sits quietly and drinks it all in. First up, is a classy champagne Grande Réserve from Dumangin. This expertly crafted, extra-aged beauty is perfectly nuanced to offset the ennui of kitchen duty. With aromas of stewed bramley apples and brioche, there's no better way to tackle...
