Winemaker Jonas Newman and his wife, Vicki Samaras, run Prince Edward County’s Hinterland Wine Company. As well as making some splendid wines, they are also terrific fun to hang around with, so it’s a great pity that due to the pandemic we won’t be able to take a trip out to see them this summer.

In lieu of a raucous evening of venison and fine wines, I’ll have to make do with a wine-driven iffy-internet Zoom banter with Jonas about his experiences during these most difficult of times… not quite the same, but it’s certainly better than nothing!
