Edd is our resident wine expert; after moving to France in 2005 he got to know the Bordeaux wine areas/ classifications and quickly learnt the difference between good and bad budget wines.
In 2006 he started importing wine into the uk for the trade. By 2009 word had spread and China was ordering containers of his selections. In the same year Edd was exporting pallets of high end wine to Canada, who’s love of Bordeaux wines grew until 2016 when 20 foot container were needed.
Since then and the arrival of little-ones Edd turned his attention to helping Anna with weddings at Lagorce whilst still dabbling in higher end wines for weddings and wine tastings at the Chateau.
