After a long career in IT, while being a part time wine tutor, I decided wine was more interesting than IT. So for the last 7 years I've just done wine stuff, mainly in English vineyards, I love talking about wine, and I love Italian wine (especially whites from the south), Languedoc, Bordeaux and Pinot Noir.
I've recently joined Majestic after coming back from Australia, where I worked both in wine and education. I have a love of French wines in particular and also Australian wines. Semillon and Riesling from down under, I see as unsung heroes. I will continue my passion of travelling to world wine regions.
I've been with Majestic for 5 years now, and have worked in Colchester, Ipswich and here in Braintree. I was Assistant Manager here 3 years ago and am loving getting to know everyone again. My favourite wines are big Aussie Shiraz and classic old world whites! Outside of work my main interest is surfing, so if I bore you with a surfing story I apologise in advance!
I have always enjoyed wine but it wasn't until I completed my WSET that my passion took off. I love red Rioja and enjoy anything from Greek whites to New Zealand Pinot Noir!
You'll find me out and about in the van on Fridays and Saturdays!
