Hello, how you doing?
My name is Matt, I’ve worked in the wine trade in one form or another for well over a decade, during that time I’ve been lucky enough to try some of the worlds greatest wines (and some of the worst) and visit many of the worlds greatest wine regions.
Due to a misspent youth I have a memory like a sieve so writing this blog is a great way for me to remember some of my wine related experiences & thoughts.
I like to drink wines that the French describe as ‘Vin de Soif’, wines of character, preferably with an alcohol level closer to 12% than 15%. Wines that are balanced, nearly always alongside food and friends, music and laughter.
I like to keep an open mind with wine but will always look for wines that are made in small quantities in a way that best looks after the land the vines inhabit.
