Articles and Features

Through extensive travel in the wine regions of Europe, together with an in-depth understanding of wine growing, wine making and wine selling, Richard Esling is able to write interesting and informative articles and features on many aspects of the wine industry from an individual viewpoint.

Whilst concentrating on a wine theme, articles may often include comment and reviews of restaurants, hotels and regions, all related and involved with the particular wine topic, thus not only informing on the wines themselves, but putting them into context in terms of their origins, accessibility and association with foods.

The style is generally informal and chatty in order to entice and capture the reader, although where necessary, detailed technical information is included where this is likely to be appreciated by the readership target.

Richard uses his own photographic skills to illustrate the articles, so as to capture the individuality and character of the subjects involved.
