Jonny has been working within the wine and spirits industry for over 30 years. It has been an interesting journey from early days in the marketing department at Diageo running Smirnoff and Croft Port through to brand and design projects for Jameson, Chivas Regal and Louis Roederer to buying and importing wine. His enthusiasm and fascination for wine has increased the more he has travelled to different wine regions.
Jonny holds the WSET Diploma and is a WSET Certified Educator qualified to teach up to WSET Levels 3. He has also passed all three Wine Scholar Guild programs – French Wine Scholar, Italian Wine Scholar and Spanish Wine Scholar – with highest honours and is qualified to teach all three courses. Over the past 10 years he has run hundreds of wine tastings, classes and courses at the wine school and for private and corporate clients. He has worked as a judge at the Drinks Business Global Masters competitions and as a brand ambassador for both Moet et Chandon champagne and Ruinart champagne. He set up Sussex Wine School in early 2012 and Kent Wine School in 2018.
