Nick Breeze Wine - Secret Sommelier

Secret Sommelier is wine reporting website run by Nick Breeze with a particular focus on contemporary wine production and consumption.

Nick Breeze is a professional journalist based in London, working specifically in the fields of wine and climate change. Aside from regularly tasting and writing up reviews of wines and regions, Nick is constantly looking for contemporary factors that influence the taste of wine and how it received by consumers.

In recent years due to fluctuations in climate and the overall warming of the atmosphere, climate change has become a much more prevalent consideration in wine production. The profound effect that climate change is having on wine, on production, as well as perception and consumption, make it a key element of the reporting on Secret Sommelier.

We have recently devoted a whole category to Wine and Climate Change for posting regular content on this subject.

From the frontline of production to the frontline of consumption; Secret Sommelier is also reporting on current industry trends, including what the experts are talking about, as well as what consumers are asking for.

The frontlines of production and consumption are where Nick will be focused throughout 2019 and beyond, with new reporting carefully identifying connections between these two ends of the industry.

Tanisha Townsend decided to move to Paris 4 years ago after regularly passing through the city en route to the world’s most famous vineyards. In fact, it was about 2 years ago at the Printemps de Champagne Bouzy Rouge tasting in Reims that I saw (who we shall now refer to as) GirlMeetsGlass chirpily speaking to her web followers on Snapchat.

 

The cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, the final resting place of Saint James, rises out of the landscape, infested with antiquity. The rambling steep streets give way to shafts of dramatic light, emblazoned chapels, and tightly packed tapas bars, dusty, as old novels pressed together in antiquarian bookshops.

 

Driving into the Entre-Deux-Mers region from the north, the vineyards roll out like a bright green deep-pile carpet across the undulating land. It’s hard not to be excited about tasting wines with so much heritage, as we head to Chateau-Sainte-Marie to meet with 5th generation owner, Stéphane Dupuch. 

 

It’s been a hot couple of weeks here trekking around northern Catalonia. From the homeland and backdrop to surrealist Salvador Dali’s world to dramatic remnants of the volcano park an hour away, this place is a land of rough-hewn vistas and rustic hospitality.

 

Carluccio's deli and restaurants are a high-street staple, where great flavours in food blend easily with quality wines on the list. Following the death of the charismatic founder, Antonio Carluccio, his spirit lives on in style and philosophy. Nick Breeze talks to Head of International Operations (especially where wine is concerned!), Mike Stocks about wine-list tips, food matching and the great man of "mof mof":

 

Winemaker and owner Nicola D’Auria greeted us at the entrance of this fascinating cantina. The winery and cellars have been designed by Rocco valentini in the shape of a vertical barrel in order to immerse the tasters senses in wine.
