About Me

I’m Alison and working with wine is not just a job but a passion.

I started in finance in London before quitting and switching to working at Vinopolus, in a wine museum in London, wine merchant and I work at various Decanter Wine Awards. I was also the secretary of the East Anglia Vineyards Association which helps to promote English wine from East Anglia, the local Bacchus is some of the best in the world. I have passed the Wines Spirits Education Trust diploma and therefore I’m now an offical WSET Dip!

If you live in or around Essex or Suffolk and you want to learn about wine or just more about a wine region I carry out wine talks and parties for small to large groups. Drop me an email with the number of people, type of wine that you would be interested in, even if it’s just red or white wine and I will put a custom list of wine together for you and your friends to try and I’ll explain a bit or a lot more about wine.
