Hosted by John Earle and Chris Piper of Christopher Piper Wines - West Country Wine Merchants

Chris Piper and John Earle have been running Christopher Piper Wines for nearly 40 years, specialising in the importation of wines from around the world. Although based in the south-west of England, Christopher Piper Wines supply wines throughout the UK and have won numerous national and international awards. They have been supplying fine wines to Thurlestone Hotel since 1979. Unusually, Christopher Piper Wines is involved in every aspect of the wine trade, from vine to glass, as Chris Piper is a qualified oenologist (wine-maker), producing wines in the Beaujolais region. Chris and John are an entertaining ‘double act’ whose infectious enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for their subject bring wine to life!

Iconic European Wines

Wines will come from France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal - and maybe even Greece!

We will be sourcing from top estates and producers, some famous and others not so famous.

One can be sure that all the wines will excite and may even be controversial.
