The Wine Tipster wanted to be a horseracing commentator at the age of five. Later he fell in love with punk rock, then attended a life changing wine tasting of Chardonnays from Burgundy, South Australia and California. This spurred him on to pass a wine course, enter the wine trade and then become a freelance presenter, allowing him to indulge in his two passions of wine and horseracing.
The Wine Tipster presents for Waitrose, Taste Festivals, G.H. Mumm, Perrier-Jouët, S Pellegrino, Vini Portugal, Wines from Rioja, English Wine Producers, Wines of South Africa, Galbani, Ryvita, Brancott Estate, Campo Viejo, Jacob’s Creek and Tesco, and is the wine expert for LucebyHotpoint and for radio, including Brancott Estate’s Rugby World Cup campaign with Will Greenwood.
