Chris Grimes


Chris has worked in the Food & Drink industry for over 30 years, but qualified in wine relatively recently with the WSET Diploma. He was awarded the IWSC/Waitrose scholarship in 2010 and has been judging for the competition ever since. Chris’ love and appreciation of wine is constantly refreshed by discovering brilliant wines from the most unsuspecting places and modest producers. The concept of judging wines blind with a panel of knowledgeable and practiced tasters creates a level playing field for every talented grower and gives a chance for every producer to show the world what they are truly capable of.
