Wine teaching is John’s second career, his first (as actor and presenter) impinges naturally on his lively and stimulating tastings and lectures. He is often accused of being ‘passionate’ about the subject!
John’s watchword is “Wine without fear”, and although he frequently addresses seasoned wine tasters he particularly enjoys introducing newcomers to the fascinating world of wine, when beating a pathway through the ‘jungle’ can be both instructive and great fun.

No matter the theme, the end objective in view is greater confidence both in tasting and in choosing wine, and enhancing the pleasures of the table by matching it successfully with food.
A regular tutor for The Wine Education Service, John’s wider client base extends from private winetasting groups and wine clubs to in-house presentations and wine events for corporate organisations including The National Trust; Channel 4; IBM; Glaxo – and even the Home Office.

He is frequently invited to lecture on wine to captive (nonetheless willing) audiences on cruise ships!

John is also an enthusiastic domestic cook, and some years ago won the BBC/Zanussi competition “A Taste of Italy” – judged by Antonio Carluccio.
