Britt & Per’s take on David: David is a globe-trotting Californian (we guess also a dedicated surfer!) who has suffered (?) many years in England but is now in the (wine) desert in Texas. He explores the remotest corners of the wine world, as if he is continually seraching for the wine that no one else has tasted!
Here are David’s articles:
