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.
