Gary White is from London and currently lives in Fulham. He is founder and Chair of the Chelsea and Fulham Wine Society and writes a popular wine tasting blog. He describes himself as a ‘passionate amateur’, coming from an academic lecturing background in Geography and Earth Science and has diversified into several wine interests including wine education, wine tasting, writing and presentations. He is a specialist in Portuguese and Chilean wines, partly as he has family connections in Portugal (his wife, Sara, is Portuguese) and partly as he says ‘fewer people got there first’. He is passionate about the developments in these countries and regularly gives tastings around London and the Home Counties. Gary divides his time between London and Portugal. He is currently researching new wine producers in Dão and Alentejo.
