Brown Paper Wine is me, Richard, my mates call me all sorts of names, Richie, Dick, and many more colouful monikers.
I've been working in the booze world close to 20 years, from the moment I turned 18 I was stocking shelves and filling fridges at fancy wine stores, pouring drinks at posh venues. I’ve been a supplier to winemakers, worked in wine logistics, marketed wine, sold wine, made wine.
I like a drink, but most importantly I love wine.
I love everything about it. The vineyard. The barrel room. The look and feel of the bottle in hand, pulling the cork, twisting the cap. The pour, the aroma. The swirl, the colour. The depth, structure, finesse, the complex simplicity.
I believe in wine.
