Every area of work has its networks of colleagues, contacts and friends, and, in an ideal world, it’s difficult to tell them apart. The same is true of the fraternity and sorority of wine-writers. We meet and compete in the convivial atmosphere of tastings and presentations and develop a sense of closeness, of belonging … that sometimes even lasts after the alcohol wears off!
I met with Bernard Barbuk, Jane Parkinson, Carol Sturch Neal Martin, Colin Deane, Andrew Hill of George Hill in Loughborough and Victoria Sharples at the Champagne Bureau’s Annual Tasting at The Banqueting House.
