Just time to sneak in a ‘stocking filler’ recommendation before Christmas hits us with seasonal jollity, horrid knitted jumpers and an over indulgence of chocolate.

Amazing what wine does really. In this instance it manages to link Winston Churchill, Peter Ustinov, Anthony Hopkins, a vivacious Keira Knightley, Grace Kelly and a Sun god! Add in Jennifer Aniston, Bob Dylan in a particularly relaxed and profound mood, Hillary Clinton, James Bond at his smoothest, Banksy doing only what Banksy can do and Cary Grant. Galadriel played by Cate Blanchett plays a part too,as does Eric Cantona. I happened to misread that Barry White was also involved. He isn’t.

But I’m under instructions not to reveal more. I may have already said too much. You are just going to have to purchase a copy of Every Wine Tells a Story “A collection of the most memorable, provocative and emotive wines as experienced by 39 international wine lovers” to discover the full details yourself!

Every Wine Tells A Story compiled by Tara Devon O’Leary is just £8.99.
