    We called for your burning cellaring questions and almost 3500 responses later, our Q&A issue was born. 

    We've crammed as many answers as we could fit into this issue, turning to a range of industry experts for their advice. What we found, however, is that the more people we asked, the more the answers varied. It all reaffirms that cellaring is an extremely personal thing and everyone takes a different approach. After all, a 20-year-old cabernet may be one collector's most treasured bottle and another's biggest cellaring regret. And what one person loves about luscious, old riesling can turn another off for good. These factors aside, we've gathered a stack of brilliant insights that are bound to help your wine collection, whether that's a couple of boxes stashed under your bed or thousands of bottles in your purpose-built cellar.

    Also in this issue, get to know Australia's great grenache wines, meet celebrated chef, avid traveller and long-time wine collector Christine Manfield, and recreate a classy menu that's guaranteed to beat the chill. For those feeling the travel itch, you can dip your toe into the far-flung wine regions of Georgia and Armenia, and get planning your next visit to the Hunter Valley.

    PLUS… Free this issue is your guide to great wines for the cellar, including 60 diverse, top-rating bottles that are sure to go the distance. We've also asked each of the winemakers to share what they believe we should know about their wine and how they knew it was a strong contender for the cellar. Whether you're a devoted collector or just starting to consider putting wine down now, this is a great round-up to have on hand.
