Favourite grape or wine region?

So hard to pick just one! But if I had to, my favourite varietal would be Chardonnay and my favourite wine area would be Northern Italy (for white wines).

What’s one thing that people would be shocked to know about you?

That I was a vegetarian for over 8 years! Shocking.

What song would you pick for karaoke?

The only answer for both karaoke and staff party dances: Livin’ On A Prayer by Mr. Jon Bon Jovi.

Lucas Mader's Picks

“If I could visit any of our producers/suppliers”

I don’t know about you, but the world is a little hectic these days. A little too on your phone, a little too busy busy. Wouldn’t it be nice to slow down, doing things the old fashioned way, and spend some time in a small town? Like Brasserie Dupont for instance, located in the small hamlet of Troupes, Belgium. Located just 10km from the French border lies this world-class, family run brewery. 

Still using a flame powered boil kettle, the same malt scales used for 100 years, and a steadfast tradition of doing things the slow way. You can sort of picture it now, can’t you? A little table on a tiny town street, easting some local hard cheese, drinking a great beer, slowly watching the world go by? Sounds pretty nice to me.
