Having grown up in the restaurant trade, wine was no stranger to me and although it took me some time to appreciate its complexity, it has now become a way of life. I've since achieved a level 3 award in wines and spirits from WSET and perfected my wine knowledge to become a wine waiter, then head sommelier before joining the Waitrose Cellar team.

With over 20 years experience in the wine industry I have gained a real passion for delivering first class customer service and making the world of wine accessible. I take the view that wine shouldn't be complicated, it should be fun and best enjoyed with friends, family and great food.
Cave de Lugny Chardonnay, Mâcon-Villages
A popular white Burgundy from one of the region's top-performing co-operatives. It's a great introduction to the region, with classical tropical fruit flavours of honey, melon and a rounded, buttery mouth feel.

I got into the wine trade by accident after seeing a vacancy to work in a wine-tasting shop which I applied for as it seemed like the most fun way to earn a living that I could imagine! Once I started to learn about wine I realised what a diverse and interesting subject it was; things are always changing and there are always new wines to taste and new areas to learn about.
Domaine Balland-Chapuis, Coteaux du Giennois
For me this wine is the epitome of what summer drinking should be. Crisp and refreshing with citrus and green apple flavours and a lovely minerality, this wine is seriously thirst-quenching!
I know it's a cliché, but try this with goat’s cheese for a match made in heaven.
