We’re delighted to be taking part in this year’s Real Wine Fair at Tobacco Dock in East London. RWF is one of the highlights of the tasting calendar and many of the most exciting winemakers in the world will be pouring their wines and chatting to punters on Sunday 13th and Monday 14th of April.
The event will also be a chance for us to launch Issue #4 of the magazine - it will literally (well, hopefully) be back from the printers the day before.
We hope to see you there!
We’re big fans of Monocle magazine, so when Tyler Brulé invited us to go on their Stack podcast to talk about Noble Rot and the magazines we love, we were delighted to get involved.
You can listen to the show (#81) here: http://monocle.com/radio/shows/the-stack/81/ or by downloading it on iTunes.
Our goal with Noble Rot is always to make the next issue better than the last, so for #4 (due out mid-April), we decided to spend some time in the Jura - visiting the top producers, eating some great food and coming up with some ideas for interesting articles.
Here we are with living legend Pierre Overnoy in Pupillin.
#4 will also feature LCD Soundsystem, Paul Epworth, Valentine Warner, Bruno Loubet, John Niven, Chris Kissack, Keith Levenberg and loads more. It will be our biggest issue to date and, we hope, well worth the wait.
Issue #3 has finally gone to the printers. It is due to be back with us on December 3rd and is easily our best issue yet - 30 more pages than #2, lots of colour photos and illustrations, not to mention some fantastic articles. Neal Martin, Richard Hemming, Lily Allen and Zucca restaurant’s Sam Harris all feature, and we also have an article from Hugh Jones, the recently crowned 2013 Young Wine Writer of the Year.
We’re still struggling to get our heads around it, but the Kickstarter campaign that we ran through October proved to be a massive success. Our target was to raise £8K, but in the end we amassed pledges of £11,600. Thank you so much to all of you that got involved, whether it be with a pledge or by spreading the word.
Now the mammoth task of delivering on all of our pledge rewards has begun. One of the most interesting things to come out of the campaign is the A2 screen prints of Louise Sheeran’s fantastic artwork from issue #2.
Dan has been busy packing them all securely and lugging them to the post office. Those of you that made the relevant pledge should be receiving your prints shortly…
Thanks again for your support!

Issue #2 is available now (check the stockists for details on where you can find it) and includes articles by Jamie Goode, Stevie Parle and Alice Feiring. It also features Lopez de Heredia, life after raving, why you should drink red wine with fish and lots more.
