Member profile


Antony is the Director of Strategic Planning for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), where he has worked since 2004. His current role covers long-term business planning, and new product development: this means he has been spending a great deal of time exploring breweries in Japan while working on the development of a new WSET qualification in Japanese sake. Previously, he was responsible for WSET's textbooks and other education materials, and was the author of "Wines and Spirits: Looking Behind the Label" (2005, updated regularly since then and now available in 17 languages). Antony joined the wine industry in 1998, as a part-time sales advisor for S.H. Jones in Leamington Spa, while he was a research student. He Completed his WSET Diploma in 2003 while working for Sainsbury's Supermarkets, and became a Master of Wine in 2011. By coincidence, he won the Austrian Wine Marketing Board Prize for both qualifications. He is now a member of the Education Committee for the Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW), and supervises one of their two European second year residential programs. In his spare time he is optimistically attempting to learn the Piano Sonata in B minor by Franz Liszt hoping to reach the last page by 2023.
