I haven’t always been a wine scene insider.

Light years ago when I was a London commuter with four young kids all demanding bedtime stories, my wine selection criteria were – Is it
wet, cheap and drinkable (roughly in that order)?

Some wines really do punch significantly above their price point.

Slowly, though, I began to realise that increases in price and in quality did not always march in step with one another.

Finding out why began a journey that eventually led me to wine journalism, wine communication and judging in international wine competitions.

Nevertheless, years later, I still get boyish delight from finding an inexpensive wine that tastes like something at two or three times the price.
