Ed Adams MW

Ed Adams MW joined the wine trade in 1983 after dabbling with radio journalism in his home city of Bristol, England.

Starting off working for an old Bristol wine firm, Howells, he eventually moved to the bright lights of London where he found his passion for Spanish wine and all things Spanish rekindled by Vinos de España. Adams then spent seven years as a buyer for the Co-op in Manchester after which he became QC and purchasing director for Western Wines for 12 years until 2006.

Since then, he has been working on the La Báscula Spanish wine project with South African winemaker partner Bruce Jack, where they are working with some of Spain’s top producers.  He also consults for Lidl UK.

Ed was first a DWWA judge in 2005.
