Projects

Besides writing and reflecting for this website, I'm involved in a number of projects. The main ones are here.


Mistral: Mistral is a small wine shop and bar. It focusses on low production and low intervention wines made by people with a deep respect for their environment. Designed in a relaxe, contemporarymy style, Mistral is a space to hang out and discover truly authenitc wines alongside small tapas interpretations.


Vinorandum: Vinorandum is an online platform housing notes, scores, information and advice on the world of fine wine. It covers my work in the trade and my thoughts on regions, grapes, producers and everything in between.


Tortoise Magazine: In 2016 I found myself sat around the table with fellow creatives Sam Ryley and Kirsty Dalton, batting around an idea to create a new community magazine. Eventually, Tortoise was born, a print-only publication seeking to become a platform for creativity and positive, inclusive values in my home city of Chester.
