Languages Italian


Brendan is a specialist medical practitioner, and the development of his expertise in wine began with his involvement in tasting groups with colleagues. His love affair with wine was cemented when he lived in Italy for two years, during which time he developed an affinity for, and an in-depth knowledge of, Italian wines. Brendan is involved in industry tasting panels, writing, wine consultancy and judging, but his passion is for wine education and appreciation, and this has inspired his MW journey. He is part owner and director of Enoteca Centro, which is part wine bar, part urban cellar door, part knowledge hub, in Perth city. It's his attempt at bringing warm, European-style hospitality, to the heart of Western Australia, and to share his passion for all things wine. He runs courses - from introductory to specialised masterclasses - at the venue.
