By Brendan Carter
July 6, 2020
It's a bit of a thing in the Wine Game to traipse around the world working harvests amongst some of the most beautiful vistas - but few have hit as many as this humble human; Michael Corbett - having reached over 20 vintages across 9 different wine regions - this winemaker's rap sheet is beautifully contrasted to the way he loves to craft wine; slow, considered and taking time to learn a single place and a single time through a remarkably narrow lens of site and soil. Vanguardist Wines are a remarkable look into how wine could (or perhaps should) be crafted.
