Writer, Event Manager and Consultant
Wearing many hats since stepping into the wine world in 1986, David's currently promoting wine regions/countries and sharing his knowledge of them in trade media such as the US's Wine Business Monthly, the San Francisco Wine School blog, France's SommelierS Int'l., with occasional bylines in his former home of England. Having managed and hosted conferences on climate change in Spain and Hong Kong's Wine Future 2010, he's recently created and staged Origins of Wine Civilization in SF and DC's Smithsonian and Austria Abroad in New York's Finger Lakes (and elsewhere soon tba). David's served two terms on the UK's Circle of Wine Writers executive committee and passed the advanced exams of the Court of Master Sommeliers. David's favourite wine touring companion is his father, while his mother thinks him famous.
