David's Recommendation

What's the boss drinking this month?

"A lot..."

After twenty years of location planning for corporate retail clients, David's enjoying spending more of his time talking about his love of wine.

"I’d describe myself as 70% Retailer/30% Wine Enthusiast – so I always look for the price vs. quality ratio when assessing wines. The obvious choice is South Africa but I still think it’s possible to find great value wines from France."
