On today's episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with the incredible Henry Jeffreys, a renowned writer and speaker. With an extensive background in the world of wine, Henry has graced the airwaves of BBC Radio Four and Five, served as the wine critic for The Lady, and been featured in reputable publications like The Spectator and The Guardian. Notably, he was honored with the Drinks Writer of the Year award by Fortnum and Mason in the previous year. Henry has also penned notable books such as ‘The Home Bar’ and ‘The Cocktail Dictionary.’
We delve deep into his latest literary offering, ‘Vines in a Cold Climate,’ a book that was recently released this year and is readily available on Amazon. Henry has generously narrated the audiobook version himself, making it an excellent choice for those on the go or simply looking to immerse themselves in the narrative. ‘Vines in a Cold Climate’ offers a compelling exploration of the English wine revolution, spotlighting the remarkable individuals driving this transformation. Tune in as we unravel the fascinating insights and narratives within this captivating work.
