Starting from January 23rd, the show will air on Sundays and will explore storytelling, communication, marketing, and visual communications across the global wine industry.

News from the Italian Wine Podcast, the award-winning project recognized as one of the most frequently listened-to wine podcasts on the market. During lockdown, in 2020, the podcast became the only daily wine podcast in the world. To date, the Italian Wine Podcast has generated nearly 2 million listens across 747 episodes, and it is now going to launch a new show: “Polly Hammond Uncorked”. The first episode will air on 23 January 2022 with special guest, the renowned wine writer Jane Anson, sharing her experience as one of the world’s most accomplished experts on the wines of Bordeaux. The weekly series will explore storytelling, communication, marketing, and visual communications across the global wine industry.

Polly Hammond is a digital wine-communication professional and self-described black sheep marketer. She is the founder and Managing Director of 5forests, a globally recognized, award-winning digital marketing agency that helps wineries transition to digital, from strategy to social to sales. She divides her time between New Zealand, Napa, and Spain, consulting, writing, and speaking about the trends that impact today’s wine businesses.

Jane Anson built her career over two decades at Decanter. In October 2021 she made the bold decision to launch Jane Anson Inside Bordeaux, a subscription based digital platform featuring tasting notes, comprehensive reports, on-the-ground insights, podcasts and a searchable database.
