Jason, what do you like best about working in the wine trade?
"Having stumbled into the wine trade in 1990 with no experience or understanding of wine, it has managed to keep me intrigued and surprised at every turn. My work with large national and regional groups and individually run bars, pubs, restaurants and hotels over the last 27 years has given me a unique understanding of how and why people buy wine, whether it’s how the list is structured to what’s on trend. Using the latest wine analysis information we can create lists and planning for any size of business."
What is your favourite wine and why?
"What is your favourite wine? Often a question I’ve asked - and been asked!
With anything in life your views or taste vary over time, and are dependent on the situation. My favourite wine is one with like-minded people whose faces light up when something cracking is opened. Being pushed I would say my favourite grapes
are Chenin Blanc for its versatility and Pinot Noir for its elegance."
Tell us one little nugget of information about yourself?
"Life would be very dull with only wine. To help keep the wine and food calories off,
I cycle around the flat lands of Cambridgeshire, come rain or shine, and have entered
the Ely Half Iron Man in August 2017."
