Speaking at last week's Beautiful South Tasting in London, Jo Wehring, WOSA UK market manager, said this year has been exciting for South African producers.

Italian winemakers have been vexed this year by one of the wettest and most "bizarre" vintages in recent memory, as one producer put it.

An unusually cool summer slowed it down but the lower temperatures also brought overly abundant rainfall throughout Italy, which hampered ripening and led to widespread vine disease.

5 ways millennials are changing the wine world(2014-10-31)
• Millennials, whose budgets are more limited than boomers’, don’t show off by bringing the most expensive bottle of wine to a party. • Millennials prefer wines with less tannin and more sugar and are developing a taste for sparkling sweet wines. • Thanks to the Internet, wine lovers no longer have to take a costly trip to California or France to learn how wine is made. They can simply watch a YouTube video or connect with a winemaker on Twitter. • Millennials also love to share information, which makes them an even more appealing demographic. • Millennials are adventurous. They’re more likely to rely on the opinion of a friend or peer rather than a critic they’ve never met.
