I first discovered wine at college, a friend introduced me to an excellent bottle of red and I was immediately hooked. As a student money was tight so I made it my life’s mission to find excellent value for money wine that tasted amazing and my quest started.

30 years later I am still looking for that elusive superb bottle at a reasonable price. I have to say the journey has been marvellous, I’ve learned a lot, even worked in the industry for a brief period, but most of all I’ve loved all the tastings, the laughs and the people associated with drinking wine. They have been friends, colleagues, winemakers, tasters, educators and retailers, all with one thing in common and a shared passion for one subject.

Long may it continue and I hope you enjoy my continued journey on this fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable path in life.
