Have you seen The World of Fine Wine? It has been described as the First Growth of wine magazines. As someone who looks for more than routine pleasure from a bottle of wine and delights in new discoveries I am pretty sure you will enjoy our exceptional, intelligently hedonistic take on fine wine and the pleasures that go with it.

I describe it as the first cultural journal of the wine world, one that explores topics and territories never considered by other consumer publications. It is the magazine for people who appreciate the finer things in life, and who put wine in a place of honour.

It goes without saying that I am extremely proud of The World of Fine Wine, and I very much hope that you will become a subscriber. Please click here to learn more about the magazine, and about our generously discounted trial subscription offer. I look forward to welcoming you on board.

Best wishes

Hugh Johnson
