Peter McCombie MW on Restaurant Wine Lists
This show was published 09 March 2018
Peter McCombie MW tells us how he came to the UK to study wine, beginning with his WSET studies and culminating in becoming a Master of Wine, which he completed in two years. Initially (while studying for the MW) he worked for Wine Cellars, a British company importing Italian wines, headed up by three MWs. Wine Cellars was bought by Enotria, a wine distributor, and he then moved on to Bibendum to head up the sales team selling to the premium on-trade before going freelance as a wine consultant to restaurants. Peter tells us about his approach to putting a wine list together - his broad thinking is to make wine accessible to all, keeping the list easy for guests to navigate but with the chance to showcase some interesting and more unusual wines.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
