Hi all, welcome to the WineBear blog where I will try to present some interesting discussions on the wide world of wine! I have worked in wine now since leaving University with a Geology honours degree. This has brought a greater understanding of terroir but the passion for wine stems from family influence with my Father being a fruit and vegetable fresh produce importer.
Since then I have worked with Australian wines and for a year imported a selection of the finest boutique wines of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Victoria. During that period at numerous trade events and tastings I met all the other great independent wine importers in the UK. I knew our range was stunning and so it was with those likewise that we socialised with. Since deciding to move into retail to further the passion I have to bring great wine to the public, I quickly contacted all these great importers and now with their help and products feel very confident that our range is consistently stunning and delicious.
Here at the blog the aim will be to use media such as videocasts, podcasts, and links to evoke cutting edge discussion and portray the world of wine. You will find tasting reports, interviews with winemakers, latest news pieces, harvest & en-primeur reports, guest bloggers and pre-release & product news.
I hope you enjoy everything about WineBear; the wine, site, blog, service but if you feel we can improve anything just get in touch.
WineBear bringing you great wine, every time!
