Sheila Dillon finds out how the wine market is coping in the recession. Who is raising a glass and who are drowning their sorrows?

Simon Parkes reports from the 2009 London International Wine Fair, which has been overshadowed by concerns over the credit crunch, currency collapse and excise duties. He speaks to producers and retailers, samples some of the new east European wines currently enjoying a mini 'renaissance', and finds out if Georgia really is the cradle of wine making.

In the studio, Sheila Dillon discusses some of the issues raised with Peter Richards, one of the UK's youngest award-winning wine writers and broadcasters.
