HomeWelcome to my site, which features my award-winning work as an independent consultant.

In my 17 years in the wine industry I have travelled and tasted in nearly all the world’s major wine regions. I have judged at wine competitions in Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Italy and worked harvests in France, Italy and Australia.

There are few aspects of the wine industry that I have not experienced: I have sold wine, bought wine, made wine and written about wine. I know the wine world inside out and upside down.

I have visited nearly all the world’s major wine regions and judged at wine competitions in Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Spain and worked harvests in France, Italy and Australia.

I have over 3,000 contacts in the global wine industry, including most of the world’s leading merchants, brokers, auctioneers, winemakers, PRs and journalists.
