"A big thank you for making our wine tasting event a great success. Everyone commented very positively on your style, humour and content. You obviously worked closely with the venue so everything went smoothly. Much appreciated."

Experienced presenter of wine courses. David runs customised tastings and events for private groups, corporate clients and a wide range of clubs. He has an informal, very approachable style and loves the challenge of coming up with a themed tasting suited to the interests of the group, thus providing them with a very personalised occasion. Another of his interests is Italian cars, so one of his specialities is presentations to car clubs where the characteristics of the models are matched to the wines. Travelling widely in Europe and the United States, he enjoys introducing others to new or rediscovered grape varieties, finding new quiz questions, and adding to the fund of wine stories that accompany all his tastings. He is a judge for the International Wine Challenge (IWC) and International Wine and Spirits Competition(IWSC).
He is also a great fan of gin. His tastings tell the story of gin, the gin making process, and explain what makes certain brands and the many new names now on the market taste different.He can also tell you how to make the perfect G&T alongside some other classic gin cocktails.
