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, Tesco, Nespresso, Baccarat, Taste Festivals, G.H. Mumm, Perrier-Jouët, S. Pellegrino, Vini Portugal, Wines of Germany, Cheltenham Food & Drink Festival and has a regular radio slot on BBC Radio Oxford.
