How to find the next cult wine

A guide to finding that wine everybody is going to be talking about, plus a few places to look!

One of the funniest parts of being a wine lover has been finding rare, hidden, and unearthed gems that the world can latch onto. You know those bottles that will make your geekiest wine friends gasp in amazement? Yeh, those wines! If you follow any wine influencers on Instagram you will find a world filled with glee over someone’s hard-fought acquisition of the fabled Susucaru Rosé or a vintage bottle of Nicolas-Joly. It's easy to say that wine lovers LOVE a good cult wine, something that is really good but also makes them look really cool to their friends. The harder to get, the better. Have to sign up to an email list to get an allocation and wait for 3 years? Yes, please!
