In PUNCH, Megan Krigbaum looks at how Thanksgiving’s “it” wines have changed, and talks to progressive wine shop owners about what to drink this year.

Elsewhere in PUNCH, Jamie Feldmar talks to Eric Asimov about how his Thanksgiving wine advice has evolved over the last 16 years.

“You could argue that currently Champagne is undergoing a greater revolution than any other wine region,” says Jancis Robinson. “The most obvious change is in the climate. Virtually all wine regions are experiencing more and more hot summers, but this matters particularly in Champagne where high acids have been treasured in the base wines to be made fizzy. Average acid levels have been falling, and I think you can taste in many champagnes that the grapes were riper than in the past. This is not necessarily a bad thing.”

In Wine Spectator, Brianne Garrett talks to actor Ian Somerhalder about the “alchemy” that went into making his red blend, the parallels between wine and film, and why he still reaches for value wines.

“The term ’natural wine’ is an insult to the humanity of wine,” said Chilean winemaker François Massoc during a discussion with the Drinks Business.

In Forbes, Thomas Pellechia analyzes the ups and downs of the 2019 global bulk wine market.

In Penta, Jake Emen explores the world of concrete-aged wine.
