New podcast launch: The English Wine Diaries features interviews with people from the world of wine and beyond

A new podcast has launched to champion English wine and those who make and promote it.

Each week, The English Wine Diaries features interviews with sommeliers, vineyard owners, hoteliers and some rather familiar faces too, who talk about how a love of wine – particularly that made on British soil – has helped shape their lives and careers.

The first series includes guests such as influential hotelier Robin Hutson, founder of Hotel du Vin and the Pig Hotel group and Fergus Elias, head winemaker at Balfour Hush Heath in Kent.

The English Wine Diaries podcast is presented by journalist Rebecca Pitcairn, who has worked in both national and regional media, and founder of online English wine and lifestyle magazine, The Southern Quarter, which exists to promote wine made in the South East of England.

“Having worked as a journalist predominantly on regional newspapers and magazines, I’ve developed a huge passion for all things local and uncovering hidden gems right on the doorstep,” Rebecca comments. “Our vineyards are some of the most beautiful places to visit and the people behind them have some fascinating stories, many of which I delve into on The English Wine Diaries.

“I also speak with others in the world of wine, and beyond, about how the fruit of the vine has helped to shape their lives and careers.”

New episodes of The English Wine Diaries are available each week on most podcast directories, including iTunes, Spotify and Google. Subscribe to be the first to listen or follow @thesouthernquarter on Instagram for news of upcoming guests and more English wine-related interviews and articles.
