The week in pictures

Joe Fattorini, wine writer, presenter and ‘Obi Wine Kenobi’ on ITV’s The Wine Show, has been named as IWSC’s wine communicator of the year. Frequently found with a Dachshund under his arm, Fattorini has taught viewers about the ritual of kissing vines in South Africa, visited vineyards in the war-torn Middle East and voluntarily spent time locked in a wine barrel to illustrate how a winemaker helped the French Resistance during WWII.

Speaking to The Herald, he commented: “It is a great honour to receive this award, which represents the work of the remarkable team who made The Wine Show happen, from the investors who risked their money and the directors and producers who risked their reputations, to the tireless technical team and the wine makers who welcomed us and told us their stories.”
