Tom Cannavan and Rude Wines

We're extremely excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Tom Cannavan, one of the UK’s leading wine writers, to bring you a fresh, honest look at many of our wines.

Having met Tom at one of the Festival of Wines events, the Rude Wines Team hatched a plan: we would approach Tom to ask if he would consider tasting and reviewing a broad selection of our wines, to give an entirely independent and expert assessment of their quality. We're delighted to say Tom agreed!
