Jeremy Lithgow, Master of Wine: Greece

May 8 @ 7:45 PM - 10:00 PM

It’s always a privilege to welcome a Master of Wine to our Society, especially so when they are presenting to us for the first time.   The Master of Wine is globally recognised as the highest qualification and they number just a few hundred across the world. .

Jeremy has been working in the wine industry since 1995, starting his career in London wine retail. This was followed by five years in Australia, working vintage in the Yarra Valley before a period in Sydney with the country’s leading European wine importer. Jeremy then relocated to Melbourne to run a European wine store. Returning to England in 2007 he managed the Harrods Wine Department then moved to Burgundy specialist Charles Taylor Wines as Sales Director.  He achieved the Master of Wine qualification in 2016.  And since 2017 he has been Head of Wine for UK national distributor, wholesaler and retailer Amathus Drinks.

Tonight he’ll be presenting his choice of wines from Greece, one of the world’s oldest wine producing countries.  Greek wines have been available in the Uk for as long as we can remember.  However, it’s during the last 10 years that they become recognised as achieving top quality and they now shine alongside some of the world’s best known wine regions.  The winemakers embrace the country’s indigenous varietals, each of which has a distinct character and qualilty.  The Amathus portfolio of Greek wines brings us some the best available in the UK, including wines which now feature internationally known grape varieties.

We expect this evening to be extremely popular and early booking is recommended.
