Do you know how to pair wine and food? Does glass shape really affect wine taste? This week Scran answers all these questions and more as Rosalind chats to founder of Wine Events Scotland Diana Thompson.

Diana hosted Edinburgh's first Fizz Feast festival last year and is set to launch Edinburgh Uncorked this year, along with the fifth instalment of Fizz Feast.

Diana chats about how wine price doesn't necessarily matter, how to taste wine and what her favourite supermarket buys are. Plus which glass is best - as shape really does matter.

Caitlyn Dewar from the Edinburgh Evening News is in the studio talking about her favourite wines and the rise of the wine bar.
