About Me

Wine has long since been a personal passion and I’ve been dabbling in the periphery for many years through the WSET (currently finishing my Diploma), picking grapes at local vineyards, growing my own vines, attending launches, events and tastings, and visiting cellar doors whilst on my travels.  Following 18 years in the Telecommunications industry I decided to blend my work with my passion, and now formally work in the trade.

I love to write and aspire to educate, and what you’ll find on my site is a myriad of wine history, wine experience, wine learning and wine learning technique.  I’m truly fascinated by the endless scale for the better understanding of, not just the vines, but also geography, topography, irrigation techniques, and much much more.

I hope you find something that interests you – please do get in touch with me via the many options throughout the site (Facebook, Twitter, email etc) and let me know what you think or what you’d like to see.

I’ve been lucky enough to study under several Masters of Wine, as well as having a handful of pieces printed in the worlds leading wine magazine Decanter.  I also blog extensively for Aldi, Laithwaites and Tesco about their latest releases as well as filling the under-nourished niche of wine history from the late 1800’s to the early 21st century.
