The Halliday Wine Companion Podcast

Here at Halliday Wine Companion, we’re always looking for new and engaging ways to talk with you about the topics you love. That’s why we’ve launched a podcast mini-series about cellaring aimed to educate and entertain.

Pop in your earphones and listen to Halliday magazine editor Amelia Ball talk with our expert panel of reviewers and wine people in the know about everything from the basics of cellaring to finding the elusive ‘right time’ to open that bottle of wine, as well as recommendations for your Virtual Cellar.

When we last asked you about cellaring, so many of you wanted to join the conversation (3602 of you, to be exact). There’s a real blend of skill and art that goes into building a stellar wine collection. It’s personal – a culmination of your tastes and experiences – but there are also some ABCs that every wine lover should know. In this six-part audio series, we’ll arm you with all the information you need to achieve beautifully aged wines.

Listen below and keep an eye on our website and social channels to hear our new episodes.

Updated Android phones and tablets may already have the new Google Podcasts app installed.
