The UK Wine Show Podcast

Chris Scott explores the wine scene in the UK and around the world

Welcome to the UK's first ever and longest-running wine podcast, launching back in 2006 in the early days of podcasting. I'm Chris Scott and the UK Wine Show is a weekly podcast, exploring the wine scene here in the UK and around the world. During each show I'll interview winemakers, producers, critics, wine bar owners, you name it, if it's about wine, it will be covered. Almost all the good wine from around the world washes up on these shores so we'll find out more about the people behind the wines that make a splash. Personally I think a bit of knowledge can significantly improve your enjoyment of wine, so I'll be picking up and passing on some great wine tips & tricks throughout the shows.

If you are a regular listener, do consider supporting the UK Wine Show podcast on Patreon. You can give a one-off tip or pledge a monthly amount, equivalent to a cup of coffee or very small glass of wine!

Cheers, and good drinking!
