About the Author: Roddy Button: Roddy started his career working for a centuries-old wine company in Bristol. His responsibilities included the enjoyable task of decanting and tasting wines from the ‘Directors Bin’, some of which dated back to the late 19th century.
When the business was taken over by a large wine and spirit company, Roddy moved to London to work on the marketing and advertising of various wine and spirit products.
Having successfully completed all the Wine and Spirit Education Trust’s exam courses, right through to Diploma, Roddy is now an AIWS, Associate member of the Institute of Wines and Spirits.
Roddy is passionate about wine and, along with Mike Oliver, his co-author of ‘The Wine Quiz Book’ and ‘Wine: 101 Truths, Myths and Legends', regularly attends international wine tastings in London, as well as travelling every year to different wine regions to meet producers and taste their wines.
Mike Oliver: Mike’s interest in wine began at university where he was a member of the wine tasting team, a role that sparked a lifelong involvement in the wine trade.
During his career, Mike has advertised many international brands of wines and spirits, a position which has regularly brought him into in close contact with international wine producers.
He frequently takes part in trade and consumer wine tastings in London and, on one occasion, narrowly lost out on the Wine Taster of the Year award to well-known wine expert Oz Clarke. Mike’s passion for wine has made him an enthusiastic collector of both new and antique wine books.
With his co-author of ‘The Wine Quiz Book’ and ‘Wine: 101 Truths, Myths and Legends', Roddy Button, Mike makes regular trips abroad to visit wine regions and meet wine makers, from local farmers to internationally celebrated estates and families.
