Drinking with Phill and Mags
Phill Humphries and Mags Rivett
Your monthly celebration of all things quaffable.
Phill and Mags are wine enthusiasts, not to mention all the other drinks they can be found enjoying.
They bring you hints, tips, recommendations, information and a range of interviews from winemakers, vineyards, retailers and restaurants.
This month Phill and Mags are going international with an Austrian grape, a brand new book about English wine and food from Cindy-Marie Harvey, trips to Iceland and Canada and a Eurovision wine shoot out!
Little Fish and General wine hosted an evening of Sushi and Wine to promote their unique partnership. One specialises in high quality wine and the other in amazing sushi conceived and created by Michelin-trained, multi-award winning chef, Neil Witney. His business...
This month Phill and Mags chat to Huw Trevor, the new Brewer on the block and tell you why beer is one of our greatest “mistakes”. We explore the Italian grape Fiano and talk about tiny Italian vans plus our tasty wine recommendation.
This month Phill and Mags are out on the town visiting the Auction House and the Townhouse – bit of a house party! Along they way they talk wine, cocktails, queuing at Sainsburys and more.
March is upon us and Spring is sprung! This month we have not one but two brewery visits, a restrospective look at whisky for Burns night and we rise to the challenge of talking about our grape of the month Chasselas!
February is generally recognised as the most miserable month of the year so we will try to brighten it up for you! Phill will tell the story of Carmenere and Mags recommends a bottle for you to discover its delights. We hear from the Nodding Donkey distillery in Chichester, and we have a valuable public service announcement….
We welcome in the new year with a slurp! Mags tells us about India and how she is an officially licenced drinker! I visit Luxters Chiltern Valley winery…and brewery, and we take a proper look at a germanic favourite Reisling.
This month we look back over a whole year of Drinking with Phill and Mags from vineyards, to gin, to hangovers, to sober October!
This month it we go hunting the origins of wine in Georgia, Mags gets carried away in the General Wine Company and we explore the delights of cabernet Sauvignon. We will also have our regular tip of the month, a special wine selection and our update on this month’s celebratory drinking days 🙂
This month it is “Sober October”, well mostly! Phill and Mags discuss good drinking habits and what to do when things are not going so well. Phill chats with a friendly GP about her take on alcohol, Noni Needs talks to Amanda Thomson about her Noughty Wines, and for a bit of contrast we visit the Portsmouth distillery!!
