Favourite wine? It's got to be the rich and spicy Bolyki Bull's Blood Bikaver from Eger. What a wine! There's also a great story behind it about the Hungarian knights full of red wine in their beards.

Favourite food? I'm going to go classic and say rump steak - cooked rare. If we're going all out, it's got to be paired with Antigua Bodega Stagnari's Prima Donna Tannat.

Best cheese and wine combo? Ben's all about Brie and rosé but for me, a deliciously ripe Brie paired with something like Terra Tangra Organic Winemaker's Selection is bliss. Jammy red wine and creamy, indulgent cheese? Yes, please.

Outside of work I like to… Well with all the fine wine and fabulous food pairings you’ve recommended to me I’ve had to take up running! Aha, apart from that a game of football or some pub grub is perfect.

Aldwick Estate

Somerset, England

This absolutely stunning vineyard is set in the Mendip hills in Somerset, just outside of Bristol and Bath. Aldwick Estate has been family-run for five generations and is today Somerset's largest vineyard at 11 acres of vines. The estate is headed up by managing director Sandy Luck. Sandy says the mission for Aldwick is "to balance respect for tradition with the drive for innovation".

Vines are hand-tended throughout the year by a small team based on site. Grapes are hand picked every September and October and pressed by wine maker Steve Brooksbank to create a range of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines.
