Sebastian Thomas, judge on the DWWA Burgundy panel in 2010

Sebastian Thomas found his way into wine after a career in book publishing. He started out selling wine to New York restaurants, and was fortunate that the sommeliers at the time ‘knew even less than he did’. He moved to England in 1995, and worked for Laytons before joining Burgundy specialist Howard Ripley in 2000. Since then, the portfolio has grown to include Pinot Noir from New Zealand, Oregon and Switzerland, as well as a broad selection of German wines.
