Wine has been part of our culture for 3,000 years. Like art, its enjoyment is fundamentally subjective, to make great wine you need both science and creativity in equal measure. Wine brings families and friends together not just to eat but to down tools for a while and share the day's events. It's the glue that our society increasingly needs. My favourite wine? Barolo at a push but, fortunately, I will never need to decide. Wine's beauty lies in its diversity; there's one out there to suit every budget and palate.
