Nina Caplan is an Anglo-Australian journalist and author, whose first book, The Wandering Vine, won just about every award going. It’s a fascinating and very personal deep-dive into how the Romans created and influenced the world of wine, combining history, politics and philosophy with some truly wonderful travel writing. Listen to us chat about wine styles, religion, immigration, displacement, tradition, nostalgia and the tastes and perfumes of the past.

Don’t forget, Cork Talk is now available on Spotify. You can listen to this week’s episode, plus my back catalogue of interviews with some of the world’s most extraordinary wine figures.
