I’m Lawrence Francis, Host of Interpreting Wine the place to learn from thought leaders in the world of wine and marketing, welcoming you to the London Somm Special series.

Across these 3 episodes I’ll be exploring three very different London wine led venues, talking with wine buyers and sommeliers in each venue about their wine programmes and careers in the industry. If you are working in wine or would like to I’m sure there will be loads to relate to in these episodes.

We continue our exploration of all things wine in the company of Shane McHugh, Group Wine Buyer at Goodman Restaurant Holdings Ltd covering Goodman, Zelman Meats and Beast Restaurants. We hear some of his influences across a now 15 year career in hospitality.
