UK Wine Show 80 Tim Atkin MW 2007 Wine Communicator of the Year
This show was published 07 December 2007
Tim studied languages at university and did quite a bit of journalism while there. He first worked for Haymarket Publishing on non-wine related titles. In 1985, they had a job opening on their two wine magazines Wine & Spirit and Wine International. Tim applied via the then editor Joanna Simon, now Sunday Times columnist. He knew nothing about wine but bought a book, crammed for the interview and impressed Joanna sufficiently to get the job. In 2001 he became a Master of Wine - passing first time round after beginning his studies in January 2000. He also writes for Woman & Home, Decanter, Wine & Spirit and a number of other publications and also appears on BBC's Saturday Kitchen. Tim runs beginners wine courses at Viniteca - 6 evenings over 3 months.
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.
