Whether tending to A-list cellars or exploring Chinese mountains in search of interesting varieties, the endlessly creative enthusiastic Douglas Blyde just doesn’t stop.
‘If I’ve been told by a client that they really dislike red burgundy, I will go out of my way to find a burgundy that they will fall in love with, or I will find a ranger, so a pinot noir from somewhere else in the world with a beguiling quality about it,’ he says. ‘It’s often putting in front of them strange products that a client might not necessarily have thought about.’
HNWs might gravitate towards the classics, but Blyde is always eager to ignite passions for New World flavours from Canada, South Africa and California.
