Top 10 wines in the UK press

8th May, 2013 by Andy Young

Jane MacQuitty picks out a wine that is “what’s wanted with barbecue fare” and David Williams recommends a Californian wine “that confounds expectations.”

Newspaper stackIn The Times, MacQuitty focuses on wine co-operatives, and asks the question “Can co-operatives produce great wine?” Her answer is, “increasingly, yes”.

She goes on to write: “The move towards quality has been slow, but the most exciting co-ops have dreamt up contemporary wine styles to ensure that their members and vineyards thrive.

“The Plaimont Producteurs co-operative in southwest France, formed from three smaller co-ops, Plaisance, Aignan and Saint Mont, has reinvented itself twice.”

In The Observer David Williams picks out three wines for recommendation, with one being the Californian that “confounds expectations”. He adds that “there is a lot more going on in the state” than you might expect.
