ABOUT PETER STAFFORD-BOW
Peter Stafford-Bow has decades of experience in the international wine trade and has worked for some of the world's largest retailers.
A precocious, self-taught imbiber, Stafford-Bow dropped out of university to pursue a career in alcohol. After managing various wine merchants, he became a supermarket buyer, a role which sent him to every major wine-producing country in the world. Over the course of his retail career he has swallowed, or spat, the vinous equivalent of several Olympic swimming pools.
After periods living in Asia and Africa, Stafford-Bow returned to the UK to pursue a literary career. He lives in West London with his beer executive girlfriend, an extensive wine collection and his pet ferrets, Brett and Corky.
