Richard Lambourne

Richard Lambourne

Born into the ‘large useful harvest’ of 1967 in Leicestershire.

I attended catering college where my wine interest began and after spending 3 years in London working in the Grill Room of the Dorchester Hotel I became head wine waiter at the Spa Hotel in Kent.  I join the CMW team in March of 2009 after 12 years working for a Wine specialist in the midlands.

Having 4 children (2 girls/2 boys) after my taxi services, pocket money and general fetcher and carrier services are dispensed with….I’m a long suffering Leicester City fan,with the occasional round of golf for a little peace and quiet.

Favourite Place

Zurich, for its beautiful city,people (helps my girlfriend lives there) and relaxed life style.

Favourite Food

For you that know me anything on a plate…but for those that don’t love traditional English fayre….fish n chips, Sunday roast, sticky toffee pud…mmm.

Favourite Wine

Big heavy, chewy, busty reds from Italy, BAROLO’s, AMARONES….
THE Loire whites enjoy their crisp fresh ripness.

Favourite Holiday

Swimming with dolphins in the carribean, something I was lucky to do a few years back or chilling in the sun on the banks of lake zurich with a glass of wine in hand.
