Why I launched Wine23

"Wine drinkers today simply have too much choice. They are confused, overwhelmed and even intimidated by the thousands of wines available.
Many of us in the industry have our noses too far up our wine glasses to recognize it.

That’s why I created Wine23.

It’s here to help wine lovers navigate the complex world of wine. Wine23 is quite simply a tool that helps the consumer easily choose and enjoy wine – to find the perfect wine, at the right price and to serve it with confidence."
