My personal glass of history -
Author and Journalist - having been in the Wine industry for some 30 years, I have am an Author, Co-Author and journalist with a reputation of being sometimes controversial, always questioning and always looking for a way to make the complex understandable. My books are on the recommended reading lists for wine courses world wide and winning the Gourmand Award for best Wine Education Book Worldwide was a real accolade.
Wine Maker - I started consultancy work whilst in South Africa which took me to some of the most beautiful vineyard locations and allowed me to work with some of the foremost South African Wine Producers and well as non established vineyards, advising, appraising and learning (nature and vineyards are never static). I have in the last few years been a consultant for the St Hilarion Winery in Northern Cyprus which I have been involved with, from the planting of the vines and as with all new Wineries have been with them to see a great deal of hard work start to come to fruition. Wine making at its best does not have a quick return, the vines need maturity and the wine needs time, but despite the hard work wine making is one of my passions.
Member of the Circle of Wine Writers - I have been involved with the CWW for many years and with fellow journalists, Authors, lecturers, photographers and broadcasters have been able to express views, encourage good practice in wine making and exchange knowledge.

Founding Member of the Association of Wine Educators - What they say about me.....Keith is a very experienced and hugely popular wine tutor and presenter. He was one of the founder members of the Association of Wine Educators.
His style is light-hearted, humorous and sometimes irreverent. He is always in high demand for tutored tastings for wine societies and corporate clients who are often amazed at the amount of information presented so passionately in such an entertaining manner. However, Keith is also well qualified in matters of education, including a Masters that involved research into aspects of quality and learning environments in adult education and training
