Delegate Profile

Peter Richards, MW


Peter Richards is a Master of Wine and TV presenter, familiar to millions through this broadcasting work on the likes of the BBC, Sky One, ESPN, Food Network, BBC radio and beyond. An award-winning writer with four books under his belt and credits including the Financial Times, Guardian, Times Online, Food & Wine, Decanter, World of Fine Wine and more, Peter has been described variously as a ‘Rising star’, ’National treasure’ and ‘Best in the business’. It helps being one part of a unique double act with his wife and fellow Master of Wine, Susie Barrie, with whom he co-hosts the acclaimed Wine Festival Winchester and has won many awards. Peter brings a unique insight and experience of English & Welsh wine in an international context, having written widely on the subject and recently published the acclaimed Essential Guide to English Wine. Making wine entertaining and exciting is what Peter does best. In his spare time, he runs half marathons for charity and acts as Susie’s ineffectual sous-chef.

‘Master of Wine, friendly advisor – nothing short of a national treasure.’

‘Truly professional and, if I may say so, a joy to work with!’

'If only more communicators were as engaging and charismatic as you! A true gift.'

‘If only more communicators were as engaging as you! A true gift. Your presentation was perfect.’
