Born and raised in Kent, Scott’s passion for winemaking has seen him working in wine regions all over the world – Tuscany, California, Oregon, Ontario, Marlborough, Canberra and Languedoc, to name but a few. Having studied a 2 year Masters of Science in Viticulture and Oenology, Scott’s passion for Traditional Method sparkling wine led him to Champagne where he interned with the Comité Champagne’s vineyard research team.
After years of globe-trotting, Scott’s winemaking journey has come full circle, bringing his wealth of experience back to his home in Kent. Scott joined us here at Mereworth Wines in time for our first commercial harvest in 2018, and has proved an invaluable source of knowledge on anything and everything associated with viticulture and winemaking. It is his expertise, alongside his relentless care and attention to the vineyard throughout the year, which all comes together to make our English sparkling wines truly exceptional.
