“Justin is one of the most creative thinkers I have met, a true entrepreneur, and he is also a do-er.  I’m staggered at how much he has achieved but I don’t think we’ve seen anything yet – I reckon he’s just getting warmed up!

Justin is driven and focused on his aim to persuade more & more people to understand more about wine, his intellect and knowledge are to be admired.

He also has a remarkable ability to communicate and reach people at any level of understanding; he can ‘demystify’ wine for the lay person as well as debate with his peers. He doesn’t have the ‘aloofness’ or snobbishness that often goes with people of his calibre. Very personable!”

Frances Horder – IWSC Director

“We have benefited from a close relationship with Justin for nearly ten years now, first as our Global Wine Director and for the last seven years as a valued consultant. He has helped us with valuable creativity, provided wise advice, and made useful connections.

Our customer events are market-leading, and owe a great deal to Justin’s originality in helping us to devise new formats (such as ‘Tasting in the Dark’) and his star qualities as a wine presenter.

As Justin continues to build his portfolio of clients around the world, we will see less of him in 2020, but will still maintain our connection and our productive dialogue, especially when we need some thoughtful insight.”
