Andrew is the one who had the bright idea for World’s Best Vineyards (WBV). He is the brand custodian for WBV and the International Wine Challenge (IWC), both of which are important to parent company William Reed. He is responsible for their effective running but says he has “a brilliant team that deals with all the details on a day to day basis”.
Andrew joined William Reed in 1992 after a career in the Army and is now “passionate about conservation”.
