My philosophy is simple: wine is for everyone. It is personal, unique, individual & alive, progressive, creative, enduring and above all, pleasurable.
When I first started out in the Wine & Spirits industry, I never thought I would be as privileged as I have been to experience the best the trade has to offer.
I have worked in most aspects of hospitality, from glass washer to wine merchant, bartender to wine buyer and mixologist to wine judge. I also hold the prestigious WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits, further underpinning my credentials as an industry expert.
It is with this wealth of experience and knowledge that I endeavour to bring my insight of future trends coupled with my expertise of the contemporary world of wine to help grow business, profitability and, ultimately, extend the enjoyment that wine brings.
Due to my experience, I am ideally suited to offer advice on wine sourcing, wine lists, conducting events and tastings as well as full staff training. My bespoke services are tailored both to the specific needs of your business and your customers, whilst maximising margins in an informal, instructive and convivial format. I can help create the ideal wine list whatever your price point and ambition.
As a Wine Buyer, ‘Quality’ and ‘Value’ are the two most important words. These I hold high in regard when advising on private cellar collections, wines for special events such as weddings and birthdays. My wine services include creating the ideal dinner party wine selection for any cuisine, whatever your budget and whatever your tastes.
Education & Insight
It has always been my ethos to pass on knowledge to those with a passion to learn. Education is not just an industry-wide remit but also a responsibility. I believe all people, regardless of background, can achieve a greater understanding of the wine world.
It is with this in mind that I have set up my blog, to reach all aptitudes from experts to novices. I hope to make each week as entertaining as it is informative. And I will be sure to make it as inclusive and unpretentious as possible. Packed full of all types of wines and more.
