Our desert island is more like a rocky outcrop in the North Sea this month, as it takes place during English Wine Week. Our castaway is the inimitable Tom Surgey, someone about whom a previous castaway, Oz Clarke, describes as “enthusiastic, inspiring, a great communicator - and a smashing guy to share a glass with."
Tom is an energetic, confident wine expert, presenter and natural communicator with a sense of humour and an abundance of charisma. We first met him when he worked for Ridgeview Wine Estate in Sussex, supplier of The Society’s Exhibition English Sparkling Wine. Now he has many fingers in many wine pies, included being one of the Three Wine Men, presenter on wine-app ‘Pingza’, a regular BBC Sussex wine expert and running his own wine sales agency. Tom has always been a champion of English wines, but will they feature among his three-wine desert island selection? Join us to find out as Tom talks through his choices with The Society’s Director of Wine, Pierre Mansour.
Instagram Live at 6pm where we'll be going live on our Stories.
