"Ian's talent as a sommelier is demonstrated by his ability to make the seemingly intimidating world of wine accessible. Allowing our customers to further engage with the product they are consuming and elevating their experience as a whole."
Rachel - ELY Wine Store
"Ian has a remarkable gift in that he manages to educate you without you noticing. Anyone lucky enough to bag a tasting with him will find it more like shooting the breeze with a friend, and his fun and engaging storytelling (and no BS approach) makes learning about wine and the stories behind them as enjoyable as the drinking."
Lydia - ELY Wine Bar
I’d define him as “the ELY wine guy”. He is a great sommelier, not only for his vast knowledge, but for being an excellent communicator. Clueless to wine when I started, even I know what I like nowadays and what to look for in a wine… all thanks to him.”
Ingrid - ELY Sales Manager
