I have spent over 25 years in the wine trade. In that time I have done
most things, managing wine shops, selling to the trade, hotels and restaurants, buying, marketing and a great deal of tasting.
I have been a
wine educator since 1995 and love showing people how much exciting and varied wine there is in this world. Even after all
this time I get a thrill from introducing people to new and exciting wines as well as finding new audiences for my jokes and
I am a regular
judge at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles wine competition, a member of The Association of Wine Educators, a member of The
Circle of Wine Writers and a Wine & Spirit Education Trust Recommended Tutor and hold the Wine & Sprit Education Trust
Certificate and Higher Certificate with Distinction as well as both parts of the Diploma.
