Our gourmet wine events are inspired by the stories in every great bottle.
Welcome, wine lover. I hope you enjoy my articles on wine, food and travel. Wine for me is a way of enjoying and understanding our world. Since August 2014, my (rather renowned) wine and food experiences have become part of The Perfect Cellar, part of the amazing family that is The Clerkenwell Collection.
I became a Master of Wine in 2008, but it has been more than 16 years since I got my first job in the wine trade. My interest in wine and food
began much earlier, ignited by a potent mix of appetite, delight and curiosity. Hospitality
and marketing have run through my working life, and I have worked with some of the UK’s
finest restaurants and Europe’s best winemakers in bringing people and wine together at unmissable wine dinners and events. I write about wine, on this blog, and also for www.timatkin.com. I also judge wine in competitions around the world, and am a Panel Chair at the International Wine Challenge.
