Tony Laithwaite


Festival Marquee
Sun 6 Oct

In the 1960s, a student from Bolton took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux. So began a 50-year affair with wine. Tony Laithwaite CBE’s wonderfully engaging and deliciously direct memoir is a love letter to France and the grape, but most importantly to the wonderful characters he met on his unlikely journey to becoming Britain’s most successful wine merchant. Join him for an hour of vintage tales from the vineyard and the boardroom. [905]
