Winter’s on its way but the world of wine is still as bright and vibrant as ever. And that means there’s plenty to look forward to in the new winter edition of Grape to Glass (PDF download, 6Mb).
Following the success of our first issue, our staff have been busily putting pen to paper to bring you another batch of interesting and informative articles. Alongside regular features like Voice Behind the Vine and Simon Milroy’s Master Class, you’ll find some special seasonal pages, including a spot of gift-buying advice, plus tips on some ideal wines for the dinner table on Christmas Day. If you’re planning a big party this season then head for page 58, where you’ll find full details of our comprehensive party service. And don’t forget that our full range is listed at the back of the guide.
I‘d like to express how delighted we were with all the feedback we received for our inaugural autumn edition, so thank you to everyone who wrote in. It’s been fascinating to find out what kind of articles you’d like to see featured and if you sent in a suggestion, all we can say is watch this space! And please do keep your ideas coming, by sending your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, we’re thrilled to have picked up three prestigious awards at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge. It’s a real honour to be named High Street Chain of the Year for the fifth consecutive year at the IWC, but we’re especially proud of our Decanter Readers’ Award for High Street Wine Chain of the Year. Huge thanks to everyone who voted for us!
Here’s to a fun-filled winter!
