Michael Anderson

Michael spent almost all his twenties in France, and consequently has a great knowledge, not only of Bordeaux, but also of the wines of the lesser known regions, now coming to the fore. Once apprenticed to a stonemason with a great love of wine, he believes good wine is not simply the preserve of the well to do, but is an experience for all.

In 1999, while working with Searson’s Michael passed The Wine and Spirit Education Trust’s Diploma and, a year later he opened the Wicklow Wine Company with fellow WSET graduate Ben Mason.
