Noble Rot magazine attempts to join the dots between wine, music and food. We want to tell stories and inspire people to enjoy what they drink, eat and listen to. We is Mark Andrew and Dan Keeling and we started Noble Rot with the intention of giving young and/or alternative writers a platform to discuss contemporary culture from a fresh perspective.
In this issue:
A well-worn wine-trade legend involves a venerable merchant being asked when they last mistook Bordeaux for Burgundy. “Not since lunchtime” is their answer. Loved by some and reviled by many, the often-ignominious art of blind tasting – AKA trying to identify a wine without seeing the label – comes under the spotlight in the new issue of Noble Rot.
Also in this issue…
… interview king of interviewers Louis Theroux and disco queen Róisín Murphy. We find ourselves dancing to the tune of Theroux’s wiggle wiggle while Murphy tells Noble Rot agony uncle John Niven about her love of food over a pre-gig supper.
…travel to Andalusia to meet some of Sherry’s most exciting new winemakers, and profile Jura Yellow Wine, Emilia-Romagna’s Denavolo, Cretan wine, and Barbacàn, the Instagram dance sensations busting a move on Valtellina’s vertiginous slopes.
