About The Event
This week Tony is joined by Master of Wine Richard Bampfield.
I know Richard from his time co-hosting some fabulous Champagne Dinners at Hotel du Vin with BYWine partner in crime, Laura Clay. Richard was also a key figure in the Love Wine Festival which launched at HDV in Brum and I am an avid follower of his work with Lidl where he has saved me many hundreds of pounds on some stonking wines but here's the more formal bio below. I can assure you of a very absorbing hour as we focus on Wines of Australia and Burgundy. Please send us your questions . .
Richard Bampfield graduated in French from Cambridge in 1981 and immediately decided the wine trade was where he could put the language to best use.
He managed retail wine shops in the North West of England for JW Lees Brewers for 7 years, then spent a year getting his hands dirty in vineyards around the world, also working in wine cellars in California and Australia.
Having passed the Master of Wine Exam in 1990, he joined the Australian producer, Brown Brothers, and managed their European operations until 1999.
He left them to set up his own company, specialising in public relations and offering wine talks, tours and courses.
Richard is a past Chairman of the Association of Wine Educators and was the European Champagne Ambassador 2009.
