I started off at majestic not knowing about wine. 10 years later I have been fortunate enough to visit most of the main growing regions around the world. My Favourites are Rioja, Bordeaux and a great bottle of white Burgundy but will just about drink anything.
I've worked for Majestic for just over three years now, starting off at the Colchester store before moving to Sudbury. I've always been interested in wine and was fortunate to grow up in one of Australia's best cool climate regions so I'm pretty partial to a good bottle of Aussie wine, but I do love a bit of white Burgundy or some of the wines coming out of California.
Having lived in South Africa for many years I can certainly recommend a few fantastic wines and producers from here. Otherwise, you'll find me enjoying a chilled glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
My time at Majestic has meant I've been lucky enough to taste a lot of wines - and visit a few wineries. If I could only drink only style of wine, well it would have to be sparkling wine. Champagne, English sparkling wine, Cava, Cremant. There's plenty of choice - and if you need any recommendations I have a list of them.
