Left school to follow a football dream, wrangled a job in a bank, specialised in credit cards, then production of plastics and statements (bulk), head hunted by Post and now I specialise in the delivery of fine wine!
Three things in my life I love, family, beautiful food & wine and great music. Sadly for me but luckily for you I can neither sing nor rip a face melting guitar solo to change the world of rock 'n' roll.
An avid wine enthusiast, Stirling's love of wine started by chance whilst working in Glasgow. He soon discovered there is more to this fine city than Scotch Whiskey starting him on a twenty five year journey of wine appreciation.
My happiest places revolve around food and wine - eating, cooking, poring over recipes, over-pouring wine, planning meals, reading restaurant reviews, talking about food and sharing meals with others. I relish a good chat about foodie things and take great pleasure in describing a dish I've made or something wonderful I've tasted.
I discovered my love of the grape in my early 20s while working as a wine steward in a restaurant in New Zealand. The wine industry in NZ back then was really in its infancy compared with today and so what was on offer was very limited. The Pinot Noir revolution was years away, and the Central Otago and Hawkes Bay regions had yet to start any major production of quality wine.
