Xavier Rousset – Joint proprietor, Texture, London
“Gerard encouraged me to learn and once he saw that I was interested he sent me to sommelier school in Loire Valley. He’s one of those people who is very patient but he likes everything to be right about wine.”

Eric Zwiebel – Master Sommelier, Summer Lodge, Dorset
