How one diner's toxic behaviour nearly cost a youngest sommelier her career

Restaurant etiquette dictates that the customer is always right, but as one wine waiter found after a patron complained, “revenge is sweet” can also fit the bill.

How Ernst & Young study shows the carbon benefits of cork closures

When it comes to the cork industry’s challenge to win the closures battle, one enormous boost has come in the findings of a Lifecycle Assessment study by Ernst & Young, which shows as scientific fact how cork stoppers can reduce by a quarter the total carbon footprint of an average bottle of still table wine and by almost half that of a bottle of sparkling wine. Mike Turner talks to world-leading cork supplier Amorim, which commissioned the study, and suggests that for an industry that has often been forced into owning a narrative, the carbon footprint argument sits neatly with an already impressive record of sustainability and biodiversity.
