In the late 1980’s I was asked to write a wine column for a newspaper, which led on to being asked to talk about wine on BBC radio. I have since compiled numerous wine lists for Michelin restaurants and undertake writing for hospitality clients.

“Tasting Notes” a look back at thirty years of commercial wine tasting and buying was published in paperback in 2014.

I write the wine column for Stevenson’s Scotland’s Good Hotel and Food Book” www.stevensons-scotland.com and I write fiction under the pen name Mark MacDuff. www.markmacduff.com
