Professional wine experts with years of experience
"Wine is a mediator of the first order. It can introduce you to the culture, geography and history of a region with extraordinary insight and clarity. It can create bonds of friendship that live a lifetime and beyond. It brings pleasure to so many. If I can communicate some of the passion, dedication and expertise it takes to create wines with real personality and authenticity then I like to think I shall have contributed a little something to furthering international understanding, culture and well-being... Nothing like aiming for the stars!"

Favourite quote from a book/film
"We want the finest wines available to humanity! We want them here and we want them now!" from Withnail & I.
Interesting/unusual fact about yourself?

If you were a wine what would you be and why?
I’d aspire to be a Vintage Champagne Blanc de Blancs, a wine with a clear sense of identity and direction but revealing deliciously unexpected nuances with age!
