Water for oxen; wine for Kings

Spanish proverb

We tend to agree!

Wine is a wonderful and complex subject which can be a bit daunting at first. Many of us want to learn more but don't know where to begin.

This is why we started thewineremedy - to bring together a community of wine enthusiasts who can learn together in a fun and interactive way. Rather than simply impart wine knowledge, this resource will directly respond to your needs. We know you have a lot of questions about wine, and we love answering anything you can throw at us!

 About the founder

James Lawrence is a self confessed wine obsessive, passionate about discovering and promoting the lesser known wines and wine regions of the world. He is a frequent contributor to decanter.com, Harpers Wine and Spirits, thedrinksbusiness  and the lifestyle magazine QS. In 2004, James went to study in Bilbao, Northern Spain. Luckily for him, the famous wine region of Rioja was just over an hour away by car.

He began to spend a great deal of time there, visiting the wineries in Rioja and speaking to local wine makers. Their passion for the subject and their pride in the wines was infectious. He began to realise what an amazing subject wine is and how wide and complex the world of wine could be.  Subsequently James moved into wine retail while finishing his degree, and was hooked!

James founded thewineremedy to make wine accessible to all: the fellow wine enthusiast, the novice, indeed anyone who is curious to learn more about the wonderful world of wine.

James also enjoys films, travel, and speaks fluent Spanish after his time in Bilbao. He studied law at the University of East Anglia, where he spent some of the time studying for his degree
