And in doing so, they’ve found ways to communicate directly with customers, in ways a static wine list can’t—whether that’s sharing wine specials, celebrating one-of-a-kind bottles, or creating a dynamic reserve list right on the app itself.”

It’s wrong to focus on soil and climate alone, says Roger Morris in Meininger’s. The most critical factor in creating terroir is finding the right grape.

When will world wine consumption finally catch up with production? David Morrison analyzes the data.

In Wine Enthusiast, Rémy Charest surveys the world of Sangiovese outside Tuscany, in places like Australia, Argentina, and Canada.

In Decanter, Rebecca Gibb MW meets Julian Grounds, the punk-rocking, surf-loving 32-year old who was headhunted for the role of chief winemaker at Craggy Range in Hawke’s Bay. (subscription req.)
