The Vincast Episode 017 – Dan Sims

Dan Sims is a great friend to many in the wine industry not only for his skills as a wine educator, communicator and hospitality professional, but also for his enthusiasm and humour. On this episode he joins me to talk about his beginnings in hospitality into working as a sommelier, then as a consultant, winemaker and finally for his unique and fun wine events. Being so well-connected there are a great deal of names dropped, see if you can count how many.

They offer a scholarship that provides an opportunity to benchmark world-class wines and wine professionals and teach scholars how to assess wines in blind conditions.
