About Me

My photo
Dublin, Ireland
Hi, I'm a Master of Wine (MW) having passed in 1997. I opened a wine shop in DĂșn Laoghaire, Ireland, called The Wine Library and this is my personal wine blog. There should be no conflict of interest between my work with The Wine Library and the opinions expressed herein but I will do my utmost to be fair and responsible in my posts – please read my Who Pays article in re the ethics of wine trips and writing. I have worked in wine education, retail, and consultancy since 1990. From June 2013 until May 2017 I was the Retail Manager for The Wicklow Wine Company. I was a member of the Council of the Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) from 2008 to 2014 and was also a member of the Events, Trips, and Governance Committees. Having had problems with potentially libellous comments from unidentifiable posters, I now require that if you post a comment, you must identify yourself properly or it won't be published. Please note that I do not review products or services on request so kindly don't ask. I value my independence and I believe my readers (few that they may be) do so also.

Off to Landmark...

Hi to anyone who is reading this - I'm not sure which of us is the sadder! Me for writing this or you for taking the time to read it ;)

Tomorrow, Tuesday 26th May, I fly off to Australia as a guest of the Wine Australia to attend the inaugural Landmark Australia Tutorial.

This is a serious honour and I'm looking forward to it very much. I hope to learn about some of Australia's finest wines, as well as to meet some pretty impressive people.

So this new blog (my first attempt at blogging) is here to allow me to gather my thoughts as the tutorial develops and tp express them here. I hope, dear reader, that you find these idle musings of interest.
