Happy New Year Hot Bottlers! 

There's lots planned for the year ahead and I'm raring to go!

BIG NEW TRAVEL SERIES!  – STILL UNDER WRAPS, CAN’T SAY MUCH BUT…if you follow me on social media you’ll know that I’ve been roaring across Germany this week with Dom Joly.  We fly off to another exciting destination next week and I simply can't wait to tell you all about it. Surprise of the series so far? Dom and I are both fans of the Fish-era Marillion albums. Who knew?!

My weekly drinks column has moved to a new 40 page lifestyle supplement in the Mail on Sunday

‘Life’ launched on the 14th January 2018 with a whole bunch of lifestyle stuff covering homes and gardens, motoring and food and drink sections. I’m being joined by Chris Evans on cars and Tom Parker-Bowles on food along with a great gaggle of guest writers - and look out for my drinks and travel features in the coming months.

Also coming up in 2018...

I’ll be popping up even more regularly on Saturday Kitchen this year. Tomorrow, (20th Jan) I’ll be joining Michel Roux Jr, chefs Niklas Ekstedt and Amandine Chaignot plus special guest, Kay Mellor. Tune in at 10am, BBC1.

The 3rd series of my podcast A Glass With... is being recorded with an unbelievably cool line-up of guests – tune in to Series 1 and 2 and the bonus episodes here

Three Wine Men are back! Put the dates in your diary for some fabulous wine tastings all over the UK with me, Oz and Tim plus some new faces.  We kick off with a brand new tasting with Wines from Spain on 6th March. Olé! Click here for details

To be getting on with, here are some fab Hot Bottles especially for you:


WHITE: Sisi Sauvignon Blanc, Vinarstvo Druzovic 2016 (12.5%). Oddbins, currently on offer at £8.78. Kapow! What a dazzling Sauvignon Blanc. A gorgeous way to taste the first rays of Spring and great fun to find a white so good from a little off the beaten track.

RED: Paul Mas Vinus Malbec 2016 (13.5%) on offer at Morrisons for £6 until the end of January. Get your skates on to bag this powerfully spicy and tightly packed red that feels like it’s flexing muscles made of liquorice!

Don't forget!...

Still a few days left to listen to my Boxing Day special on BBC Radio 2 on the late, great Sir Roger Moore 'Nobody Did it Better'.

...and St Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Check out the shop for the perfect Valentine gifts.

Big thank you to all you Hot Bottlers for your support and kind words over the past year.

Keep in touch,
