Charming, a splendid book, highly instructive, informative, and deliciously amusing... I laughed aloud. --Henry Blofeld. Graham Mitchell has been buying and selling wine for twenty years as a professional wine merchant. Known as the Wine Explorer, he noses his way around vineyards off the beaten track. He travels the world searching for the best wines, those with attitude and soul. Graham is the fourth generation in his family to toil in wine, so you could say that wine is in his blood! A Director of El Vino Company for six years, Graham subsequently followed his great grandfather s example and set up his own wine business. His passion for wine and wit led to a wine slot on BBC radio for eight years and much lecturing and writing about wine in the press. He also has a reputation as one of the better after dinner speakers in the UK, blending information with humour and thus leading his audience on an entertaining journey through the vineyards of the world. Graham lives with his wife Nicola, four children Ned, Harry, Ella and Bea and Clemmie the dog in, er, tranquil Warwickshire.
