My “Auctions 2010”, “The Yeatman” and “Linley” articles published by FINE

Three of my articles have just been published in the new issue of FINE-The American Wine Magazine, issue 11.

A Perfect 2010? Stuart George looks back on an extraordinary year for the fine wine market.

At Vila Nova de Gaia, on the south side of the Douro at Porto, the river flows under the Ponte de Dom Luis towards the Atlantic, 550 miles from its source in northern Spain. Dazzling light and ferocious heat bounces off white stones. Other than access to the river (and the lower taxes that brought Port producers here in the first place) it seems an unlikely place to make and store wines. It is an even more unlikely place to find what is being billed as Portugal’s finest hotel and restaurant.

Original Wooden Cases: Stuart George meets with Viscount Linley, nephew to Queen Elizabeth II, and Paul Pontallier, Director of Château Margaux, to learn more about their collaboration with The Antique Wine Company of London’s “Grand Châteaux Series” wine cabinets.
