The Sediment Blog


The Sediment wine blog is written by Paul Keers (PK) and Charles Jennings (CJ).

It has a keen following, and a high profile, for its idiosyncratic approach to wine and wine writing. In a nod to the film Withnail & I, Sediment has been described by New Statesman writer and Guardian literary critic Nick Lezard as “The finest wine blog available to humanity”.

In 2015, Sediment was shortlisted as Blogger of the Year in the International Wine & Spirit Competition

In 2012, PK’s post Just Looking: The Joy of Wine Browsing, won 1st Runner-up in the Best Editorial Wine Writing category of the Born Digital Wine Awards.

In 2011, Sediment was the only UK finalist in the Wine Blog Awards, run from the US to recognise excellence in new media, in the Best New Wine Blog category.

Its authors have also appeared as commentators on the Food Programme on BBC Radio 4, and have contributed to Decanter magazine.

Among his own posts, PK’s favourites include:
