Wine critic James Suckling has now stepped into the wine podcast ring, launching The James Suckling podcast in 2019. The series focuses on wines from a multitude of regions, including Italy, Bordeaux, Champagne, Australia, New Zealand, California, Chile, and Argentina, but is not exclusively fine wine focused. As Suckling says, “we are always open to and looking for surprises”.

Having tasted 22,000 wines in 2018 alone, Suckling decided to launch the podcast as a platform to discuss his discoveries and share conversations with many winemakers he meets on his travels. The episodes tend to release on average at around one a month, with the last focusing on 2015 Brunello, “a fairytale vintage”.
