Wine expert Joe Wadsack – best known as Tom Kerridge’s co-presenter on the BBC’s flagship Food and Drink Show - will be hosting a free wine-tasting session in conjunction with Molson Coors on the opening day of the trade show.

The former wine columnist for the Daily Express, Joe Wadsack is an internationally respected wine judge and has made expert appearances on a string of TV shows including Saturday Kitchen and Great Wine Walks.

For the last few years Joe has acted as a consultant to various companies in the wine trade, and continues to host tastings all over the country as well as abroad. He is the regular host for the annual Tesco Wine Fairs around the British Isles.

The other activity which perhaps Joe is most reknowned for is being a wine judge for various international wine competitions. He is and has been a Panel Chair for ten years at The International Wine Challenge, the world’s largest blind wine tasting, and is a regular international guest judge on the Royal Australian Wine Show Circuit.
