For a unique corporate or social event, tailor-made to your requirements, let Graham Mitchell lead you on a light-hearted journey through the vineyards of the world, uncorking the mysteries of wine in an amusing and memorable fashion.
Graham’s after dinner speeches and tutored wine tastings provide an engaging blend of information and humour and are light-hearted and fun. Known as ‘The Wine Explorer’, Graham noses his way around vineyards off the beaten track, all over the world, in order to discover well-made wines with individuality, character and balance.
Like Cyrano de Bergerac, his nose normally arrives at the vineyard about 15 minutes before the rest of him! Graham is an accomplished, experienced and entertaining Wine Presenter and After Dinner Speaker who can turn your event into an experience with a difference, a wine experience.
A wine event designed and run by Graham Mitchell – The Wine Explorer can be tailor-made to any size. It may be a small, intimate tasting for 15 people or a large event for over 200. These events are proven successes for client entertainment, team-building and social occasions alike, whether run in-house or at an outside venue.
All events are informative and entertaining and can involve a range of topics and activities including grape comparisons, country competitions, mystery wines and ‘call my bluff’ style quizzes. Graham can also perfectly match your selection of food for dinner with appropriate fine wines.
Graham Mitchell has been buying and selling wine for eighteen years as a professional Wine Merchant (6 of them as a Director of El Vino in Fleet Street) and has a wealth of experience as a Wine Presenter. Graham is the fourth generation of his family to toil in wine, his Great Grandfather, Sir Alfred Bower, established Bower and Company, wine merchants in the City of London in 1879, so you could say that wine is in his blood!
Graham’s passion for wine and wit have led to a regular wine slot on BBC radio since 2002 and made him a much sought-after speaker on the after dinner circuit.
Whether you are organising a dinner, a corporate event, a team building exercise or a wine tasting, Graham can turn your event into something truly special. There are lots of people who speak about wine but there is no-one with the same blend of wit and authority on the subject as Graham Mitchell.
GRAHAM MITCHELL – THE WINE EXPLORER
“Graham Mitchell is to wine what Michael Palin is to travel – a sort of Indiana Jones with a corkscrew! Graham has an easy going style where wit, serious comment on wine and charming anecdotes are easily mingled. However, for all the charm the audience is left in no doubt as to his passion and expertise when it comes to wine. With Graham you learn about wine in a matter-of-fact, direct and accessible way. He was excellent.“ Paul Wallace-Woodroffe, President, Ye Olde Leather Bottel Clubbe Annual Dinner 2010
“Graham Mitchell is one of the best speakers that our society has enjoyed for years. He is an engaging guide who shares his knowledge of the mysteries of wine with such a light touch that his audience little realise how much they are learning. Graham’s stories of his adventures in the vineyards are both amusing and entertaining.” Roger Morton, Standard Chartered Bank Wine Society.
