I started working in the wine industry over 27 years ago in New Zealand. After growing up in the wine region of Hawke's Bay, living down the road from several wineries and from a young age being exposed to quality cuisine and varied wine styles.
It possibly came as no surprise as a young adult I began working in fine wine retail and sales. Then involved with all aspects of wine production, label & packaging design, marketing, wine buying, distribution and for several years now consulting around the world - along with hosting varied events, tastings, classes and levels of wine education.
I am the Ambassador for over 70 wine brands distributed here in New Zealand. Leading wine brands from New Zealand, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Chile and Argentina. I predominantly work closely with the 'Trade' and the 'Hospitality Industry' - (i.e. Retailers, Restaurateurs, Sommeliers & Chefs) introducing, educating and positioning exciting and unique brands with wine enthusiasts the world over.
With comprehensive hands on experience and professional relationships with the world's leading winemakers, sommeliers and chefs - this places me in a unique position to share my extensive knowledge and add value. I have sampled every wine reviewed on my website - and each is a 'wine worth sharing' with good food, friends and family.
