A Wine Writers View on the World of Wine. Formerly Magics Wine Guide and Reviews for Newbies
Essential Local is a community magazine that comes out quarterly around the Wandsworth area of London.
With a print run of 15000, it is delivered free to housholds in Battersea, Clapham and Balham.
Having been in print now for the last five years it combines the topicality of a local magazine – celebrity interviews, local ‘Guide to…’ features, event listings, etc – with a new ‘short-list’ of local businesses.
This month, in conjunction with Julia Michael of The Wine Tasting Shop, I have had my first mini wine reviews published. The wines in the magazine have been selected to coincide with the ‘rapidly’ approaching festive season.
