Adam Bruntlett

Having studied French and German, Adam Bruntlett begun his career – after an abortive attempt at teaching – in 2008 with Majestic Wine, working for two years in their retail stores in the North and Midlands.

He then took up a position in buying and sales at Fine Wine Importer Richards Walford, working firstly under Richard Kelley MW on the Loire and then Roy Richards on Burgundy.
