Legless in Burgundy

Well, on 28th February 2008 I had my Saul on the road to Damascus moment. In fact, it was a car speeding in the opposite direction, hitting me and my beautiful racing bike directly, leaving me permanently “Legless in Burgundy”.

I am a wine broker for a French négoçiant en vins fins. Albion Vins Fins, or Albion SASU for short to be exact. Like coals to Newcastle, I am English, mostly selling Italian wine in the heart of Burgundy. Go figure.

But wine has always been more to me than commerce. Mercifully.

So wine, a little business, épicurean joy and a smorgasbord  of thoughts and commentary.

Wine offers not one way, only a myriad of opportunities.
