Noble Rot – The Birthday Issue

R250.00 inc. VAT
The Birthday Issue - Thirteen may be unlucky for some but I’m sure that there could not have been a more fortuitous time to launch a magazine blurring the lines of ‘WINE MUSIC FOOD LIFE’ than 2013. Indeed, from the moment we published the first issue of Noble Rot in February of that year we’ve been riding the tidal wave of change that’s been sweeping wine and food culture and, holy Hermitage, it’s been fun. Looking back now, we’re bursting with happiness that Noble Rot has told the stories of so many of our favourite vignerons, inter- viewed our artistic heroes and heroines, published thrilling writers, illustrators and photographers, and spawned two beloved London restaurants – with a third opening in Mayfair this spring. It’s been a stellar decade alright, which we toast in this, our 10th birthday issue, with a cast of sainted Rotters.
