How The California List brings a Grand Cru status to California’s wine estates

Inspired by the 1855 Classification of Bordeaux, The California List, which was launched on Wednesday in London, is a new 51-strong list of seminal Californian wine producers, being formally acknowledged for the first time for their impact on the UK market.

Peter Dean was our man at the launch who heard from Robinson, Sayburn and others about the rationale behind the concept.

Malu Lambert: Can cork taint be eradicated for ever?

The Funeral for the Cork was held in New York City on 2 October, 2002. A sombrely irreverent affair, four pallbearers wearing suits carried a steel casket through a railway terminal and up to a grand high-ceilinged bar. They placed the casket in front of a stone fireplace, and opened it. The corpse inside was Thierry Bouchon, a figure made from corks. The name, a play on the French word for corkscrew. The funeral was organised by chief pallbearer and confirmed iconoclast Randall Graham, founder and winemaker of Bonny Doon Vineyard in California.
