The fact that the Wine Institute in California likes it should certainly suggest that the EU has reached an unequal compromise on the subject of the use of appellation names
by the Americans.

Focus on-trade: The Analyst

Published:  18 January, 2007

John Hoskins MW is the MW student's MW, thanks to his ability as a communicator and taster. The admonishment is less stinging, and the encouragement more uplifting, because of his evident integrity, informed opinion and passion, and sound priorities. The same qualities shine through in his list at The Old Bridge Hotel in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire (where he also
has three inns), making him the wine lover's restaurateur as well.
