John has had an interest in wine for over 25 years and tasted many wines from throughout New Zealand and from many of the famous wine making regions of the world. In 1994, John completed Bob Campbell's (from the The Wine Gallery) Diploma of Wine which really got him going on his wine journey.
John created Wine to Cellar to assist other people to start and enjoy a wine cellar and to share the pleasure of having cellared wines. Wine to Cellar has now been in operation since 2000 and has assisted a broad range of wine consumers to take an interest in the wines they drink and start a cellar.
John is the Cellarmaster of a local Rotorua wine club and has organised over 130 different tastings which have included some of the world's most renowed wines - this accumulated knowlegdge and experience can now assist you with your wine selection decisions and provide some new ideas about wine tasting and food matching.
