Biography

Miles is currently Managing Director of Bowland Forest Vintners, a wholesaler and retailer based in Lancashire, England. Born and educated in Sydney, Australia, his wine career began in 1994, where he worked as a sales representative for a subsidiary of Marie Brizzard. After a two year stint, Miles left Australia and travelled to Yorkshire, England to fulfil a short-term contract to play professional cricket. Whilst in the UK the diversity of the wine offering and the opportunity to learn via WSET proved enticing and after a brief return to Australia, Miles moved to England to further a career in wine. Whilst in the UK, and following a vintage at Tyrrells in 2001, Miles continued to travel back to the Hunter Valley (Australia) on a regular basis to work as an assistant winemaker. His passion for winemaking along with the generous assistance from family, friends and colleagues, enabled him to fufil one of his dreams and become a wine brand owner. As well as running his company, Miles is a WSET Educator, has a wine education business, judges at wine competitions, consults for the on-trade and whenever time allows, returns to the Hunter Valley in Australia to make wine. His success at Diploma, being awarded the Champagne Academy Golden Magnum, along with support from his partner Emma and two sons, proved sufficient encouragement to pursue a long held ambition to study for the Master of Wine.
