Anchor 1

I was a commercial buyer for 12 years for importers/distributors selling to hotels, restaurants, independent and online shops and supermarkets. A buyer's responsibility is to buy quality wine that sells. Anyone can buy wine, but the key is to sell the wine so the producer, the importer and the customer are successful in their businesses. 

Please get in touch if you are looking for a particular wine, producer, region or style and need advice on selecting the best winery for your needs. Equally if you are a producer and are looking for an importer or distributor in Hong Kong or China, I would be happy to help.

Through grit and practice, I passed the notoriously difficult 36 blind wine Masters of Wine tasting exam on the first attempt. I went on to use my palate professionally as a buyer to select quality wines for importation into the UK, Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China.

Please get in touch if you would like to host tasting events or masterclasses in a private or corporate setting.
