Volume V of Veraison will be the last printed issue. Responding to the prompt, ‘What’s it like eating and drinking in Melbourne?’, we start this volume with a visual essay, poem and fiction short story. We then get into some essays about the natural vs. conventional wine binary, the cost of wine, fermentation, flavour, bain-maries and AI. Flick a few more pages and read about wine pairings, the supper clubs of Melbourne and how to be a good host. Put it all into practice with the some inspiration for dinner party ideas, playlists and stack of questions for conversations. This issue includes a complimentary copy of Veraison’s Good Wine Bar Archive, our very own resource to help you choose where to drink your next glass of wine (and eat a little snack).
