For good value wines, look to southern France

AS a team player, I usually like the focus of my column on the main topic of the iDeal section. This week the main theme is nutritious grains and other starches. Kidney beans, taro, sweet potatoes and yams aren’t exactly a prime wine subject but they are healthy and inexpensive so I decided to focus on French wines with the same attributes. In the south of France, the sun drenched hills bordering the Mediterranean Sea offer healthy and affordable wines.

Top-class glasses bring out the best in wines

THIS week’s iDeal section delves into the rich culture and craft of Chinese tea. One section examines how different styles of tea are served in specific types of cups or glasses, so I felt it particularly appropriate to examine the relationship between wine and glasses.
