How long have you been a member of the institute?
Since 2007, but I attended before then on a Corporate Membership
How did you first become involved in the institute?
I was studying for my WSET Diploma and it was a great opportunity to try different wines.
What wine region would you most like to visit?
Name your top 3 recommended wines
This is a practically impossible question to answer, as one of the things I love about wine is the variety and the opportunity to try new wines. So today I love Inama Soave, Veneto, Italy; Vilmart Grand Cellier NV, Champagne, France & Clunia Tempranillo, Castilla, Spain, but if you ask me tomorrow, I’ll probably give you a completely different answer!
What wine would you most like to taste?
Some of the 1st growth Clarets that are completely out of my price range.
Why would you recommend the institute to new people?
With a great range of visiting speakers it is a great opportunity to learn more about wine and try different wines in a relaxed a friendly atmosphere.
