Gang of five wine critics launch site

A new online subscription service called The Wine Gang has just been launched by 5 UK wine critics aiming to inform consumers of the best wines on offer in the UK. The 5 are Olly Smith of BBC1's 'Saturday Kitchen', Tom Cannavan of, Anthony Rose of The Independent, Joanna Simon of The Sunday Times and Tim Atkin MW of The Observer.

Each month they will compile a comprehensive report, featuring at least 200 tasting notes and covering both good and bad wines. Each wine is ranked on a 100-point scale. They will also pick 5 top fives every month with the 5 Greatest, the 5 Best Value, 5 To Lay Down, 5 Shockers and 5 of the Moment.

A free trial membership is available until October 31, after which annual membership will cost £19.99. To subscribe visit
