Although www.colinharknessonwine.com is a new business venture (March 2010), this website is, in many ways, already client-driven and client-led! Over the 20 years that I have been involved in the wine trade I have been asked to consult on many different wine related projects, from simply advising a special wine for a special occasion to total control of a new restaurant’s wine list, staff training, glasses, storage, serving etc – as well as most things in between!
Over the last 30 years there has been a dramatic upsurge in consumer interest in wine. Radio and TV programmes often feature wine spots and there are countless column inches written about wine. The result is that the public is now far more aware then ever before, and enthusiastic to learn more.
OCT 2009 WINE BOOKS 075mustsI see myself as a facilitator of this desire – I have the knowledge, the experience and the contacts to help the public enjoy their wines to the full; and to help those in the profession to improve their wine knowledge, image and of course, their sales.
You can come on line to read my recent and archive articles which cover mostly Spanish wines but also international wines following tastings that I attend outside of Spain. I’m right at the cutting edge of wine appreciation here in Spain and I’m happy to share my knowledge with you!
www.colinharknessonwine.com is unique in Spain, offering a full wine service to the general public and the wine trade alike. If you click onto ‘Services’ you will see the array of ways in which I can help you in all wine matters. Please also bear in mind that these services are adaptable to suit your specific needs.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking for any of the services offered and if you have a query/question/problem/suggestion that is not covered please ask me and I will, I’m sure, come up with the answer!
Come on-line with colinharknessonwine!
