Jim Budd on Pancho-Gate and Journalistic ethics
This show was published 21 September 2012
Jim Budd has been a freelance drinks journalist since 1988 writing for major drinks titles including Decanter, Wine Business International and Harpers. Since 2008 Jim has been blogging and has two sites, one is Jim's Loire focused on the Loire valley but also other issues (see blog.http://jimsloire.blogspot.co.uk/). The other is investdrinks.org which concentrates on the risks involved in investing in wine. We talk to him about how he helped to uncover the story about Pancho Campo (Spanish Wine Academy) and Jay Miller of The Wine Advocate.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
