This show was published 27 September 2010
Caroline Gilby is a Master of Wine and has a PhD in plant sciences. She began life in the wine trade as a buyer in 1988 and is an expert on wines from Eastern Europe. Caroline tells us about some of the key regions and how many countries have switched from being exporters of wine to having their own domestic wine culture. Having lost out to the emergence of New World wines around the time the iron curtain fell, Eastern European wines have come a long way with quality greatly improving in last 5 years. As well as Hungary we hear about the wines of Slovakia and Slovenia.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
