Alex is the owner and founder of Bespoke Bordeaux. His first visit to Bordeaux was as a child during a summer holiday and he vividly remembers visiting the vineyards of the Medoc on a break from the beach. He returned nearly twenty years later and now shares his passion for Bordeaux and its wines with visitors from all over the world.
Alex spent the first part of his career in the financial services industry. Following a sabbatical working on a vineyard in New Zealand he decided to pursue his passion for wine on a full time basis. Since moving to Bordeaux Alex has gained in depth experience of viticulture and winemaking working with a number of well known producers, including Clos Puy Arnaud in the Cotes de Castillon and Château Beau-Séjour Bécot, the Premier Grand Cru Classé estate in Saint-Emilion. Alex is an accredited tutor at the Ecole du Vin de Bordeaux and has an Advanced Certificate from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust.
