About Me

Dublin, Ireland
Hi, I'm a Master of Wine (MW) having passed in 1997. I am about to open a wine shop in DĂșn Laoghaire, Ireland, called The Wine Library and this is my wine blog. There should be no conflict of interest between my work with The Wine Library and the opinions expressed herein but I will do my utmost to be fair and responsible in my posts – please read my Who Pays article. I have worked in wine education, retail, and consultancy. From June 2013 until May 2017 I was the Retail Manager for The Wicklow Wine Company. I was a member of the Council of the Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) from 2008 to 2014 and was also a member of the Events, Trips and Governance Committees Having had problems with potentially libellous comments from unidentifiable posters, I now require that if you post a comment, you must identify yourself properly or it won't be published. Please note that I do not review products or services on request so kindly don't ask. I value my independence and I believe my readers (few that they may be) do so also.

Another quickie...

...sometimes, they're the best.

If you go here, you'll find all sorts of information about next years Landmark Australia Tutorial. This will be held in the beautiful Yarra Valley (windy so bring warm clothes) and will also be open to Australians, which Landmark 2009 was not.



If you want to know what I felt about and got from this year's Tutorial, then read back through my blog. What I can say here and now is that it was the best wine week of my life and a truly unforgettable experience.

We have a saying in Ireland: if you're not in, you can't win! I almost didn't apply, assuming that I wouldn't have a chance of being selected. So, if you're not sure whether you should apply or not, get off the fence and do it - you'll regret not applying and who knows, you might be one of the lucky 12 who are selected.

Hi Dermot,

nice to bump into you at John's Fizz and Stickie Show earlier.

I enjoyed the Grant Burge and the Green Point fizzes.
