Sandy’s early career was as a training and development manager in a multi-national corporation. In 1994, feeling the need for a change of direction, he harnessed a life-long passion for wine to launch a second career in wine education. The wine school, which Sandy now manages with Malcolm Franks is one of the largest of its kind in the country. Trading as the Wine Education Service Limited, it runs a wide range of courses and events for wine and spirit lovers. Courses are designed to suit all levels of knowledge and are delivered in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are several venues in London and regional centers in Aberdeen, and Belfast, amongst others. Sandy also tutors wine and whisky tasting for private clients and wine clubs with Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Scottish Malt Whisky are some of his specialties. He is an experienced wine tour guide. He is also a judge at the International Wine Challenge. Sandy is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers and Association of Wine Educators. He is also accredited as an international wine educator by the Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux.
