About the Grapewizard

My name is Jason and I’ve been in the wine industry for the last 5 years   It’s been a journey and I think I’ve now reached the limit of my challenges with my current company. So this blog is a continuation of my challenge to myself.  I also use the medium of acrylics to paint wine seascapes and landscapes in abstract form and I completed the Marathon du Medoc recently and have tried my hand at sabrage.

But in everything I do I make the wine world a little smaller and a lot less stuffy.

One step at a time.
