Consulting

to wine lovers, restaurant & wine trades

Want to build your dream cellar?

For the past 18 years, I have been lucky enough to travel to many wine regions all over the world. I’ve met so many winemakers, tasted 10,000’s of wines and bought for several restaurants and top hotels in the country. Having made so many mistakes myself over the years and tasted so many great and not so great wines, I can use my experience to make sure you avoid buying wines you won’t enjoy and take some pressure off your liver! From everyday wines to top end wines for long term ageing, I always use my vast amount of contacts to ensure value and good sourcing.

Staff training

As a restaurateur myself, I know too well how difficult it can be to run restaurants, bars, and pubs. Maintaining the right level of service, handling customers. upselling, cellar management and so much more are all vital factors that need to be considered when running a restaurant. I can help your staff and can help you achieve your goal: quality service, a good wine offering and consistency, which usually means happy customers!

Corporate events

We can create tailor made events around wines, including tasting with several formats possible, from team building games to exploring a whole region and different grape varieties.

Restaurant Consultancy

By Summer 2016, I will have overseen the opening of 8 restaurants in the UK From Michelin star to busy brasserie, and wine bars. Take a look at my current restaurants  Greenwich Kitchen, Blandford Comptoir and Cabotte

Opening a new place can be very daunting, there are so many steps to take and get right from the get go from kitchen equipment to the music system, the design, health and safety and much more.
