Mike is a Chartered Accountant who became a director of a public company in office products. In 1983 Chris and Mike together they set up MICHAEL Business Systems Plc, a computer hardware and software company, which grew in the ten years to 1993 from four people in the kitchen to 450 people in 7 offices throughout UK turning over £70m. They were approached by a US computer manufacturer and after selling their business decided to completely change their life style. Thus giving up the capital intensive, highly competitive, cutthroat world of IT for the capital intensive, highly competitive, low margin business of making fine wine - “But the people are much nicer”, says Mike. The first vineyard work started in 1994. Starting the new business meant going to college at Plumpton (the only course in England that studies viticulture and oenology) and getting a thorough grounding in how to grow vines and make wine - well. – Description from milana

What are the sparkling wines we've found from the New World that are as good as, or in many cases better than large batches of the Champagnes, Proseccos, Cavas, etc. from Europe? I'm most familiar with the offerings from Californi... Read More
