Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time to get all of your drinking requirements sorted. In this year’s Oracle we feature many of our favourite wines of the year, from both home and abroad. From Champagne to Riesling, Burgundy to Barolo, this is where you’ll find everything you need to end the year on the right note. Plus look out for featured articles from FWC staff members, such as ‘An Ode to the Large Format’ by Will Lennox, ‘The Search for New and Forgotten Regions’ by Jeremy Muller, ‘The Psychology of Wine’ by Ian Cook and ‘The Seductive Reds of Gerard Raphet’ by myself.
The Oracle also has some great gift ideas, such as Brian Hirst decanters, Jasper Morris’s new book ‘Inside Burgundy’ and Corovin ‘Pivot’ wine preservation systems. Furthermore, many people’s ‘once a year’ treats receive some time in the spotlight, from Sauternes to Sherry, plus all your requirements for your home bar are outlined, with a strong focus on domestic gin. Finally, on the back page, we also reveal our ‘Wine of the Year’.
View/download The Oracle here. We also have hard copies available which can be sent via post (just ask us) or picked up in store. (They're at the printers as we speak so please allow a few days).
All the best for Christmas and drink well. Ches Cook.
