From the people behind the eponymous London wine bar and restuarants is the magazine that started it all. Having (relatively) recently celebrated 10 years and over 30 print issues, Noble Rot is arguably still the indie wine magazine, rewriting the rules of wine coverage.

Known for its playful covers (and always packed with bright illustration inside), this issue leads with Gary Taxali’s emotively angry rendition of a skiing bottle of wine wedged in the snow. In his editor’s letter, Dan Keeling admits, ‘the more you learn about the wine, the more you don’t know.’ But since Noble Rot brings an array of anecdotes and reviews around wine and gastronomy, the very least it will do is excite your tastebuds. 

Inside the issue, Keira Knightley talks about the eclecticism of wine from Envínate to Blossom Hill and Kate Spicer’s reasoning on why loving wine is ingrained within our DNA. Plus comedian-musician Bill Bailey.
