Wine Life

Much of my work is in the wine industry where I seek to develop an international career as a writer, speaker and general authority on this fascinating subject. You can see my work on Vinorandum, where I store tasting notes and reflections in a purpose built search engine designed to be an easy to use reference tool.

At home in Chester, I co-own a wine bar called Mistral where we specialise in low production and low intervention artisan wines from all over the world.

I spend a lot of time travelling the world meeting growers, winemakers and merchants, tasting wines and building my knowledge on this vast, ever changing world of people, place and culture.

I host lots of wine tasting events, judge in competitions and have spoken at various trade events. You can read my wine cv here.
