Radio: Pick of the Day

IF YOU want to hold your head high at dinner parties, then The Bottle Uncorked (11am R4) is essential listening. This new series offers a bluffer's guide to wine-tasting and introduces us to the delights of holiday, winter, celebration and dessert wines (right). As Joanna Simon knocks 'em back with the aficionados in the Mediterranean, we can only listen and dream.
