“The point to grasp about Justin is that he is ‘the real thing’. He has done everything, been everywhere, won all the plaudits and the prizes; worked hard and well and won in every position he has held. These are steady hands to put your faith in.”
“I have worked in the wine industry alongside Justin for over 15 years; as a supplier and a competitor, but never sadly as a colleague.
He has one of the greatest reserves of calm intellect and consideration of anyone I know and yet knows how to provoke the hive when needed. Very strong commercially, he also manages to keep quality at the forefront of his ambitions.
I would be delighted if he were to describe me as a friend.”
