It was lovely to have the opportunity to raise a glass to Henry Jeffreys and the success of his latest book, Vines in a Cold Climate, at Balfour St Bart's last week. Following rave reviews in the Sunday Times, Daily Mail, The Spectator and the Independent, who gave it the thumbs up as their favourite book on wine, the book scored a top 100 slot in the Nielsen non-fiction book chart and has regularly secured the no.1 slot in wine and winemaking books on Amazon. Forthcoming speaker events include Waterstones Canterbury, Dulverton Exmoor Literary Festival and Folkestone Festival, along with a very hush hush exciting new project, which we hope to announce soon. You can hear Henry chatting with Times Radio about his latest book here (@ 2 hours in).
