James has always been interested in culture and in wines.
In Paris, he directed an art gallery and wrote about premium wine brands.
A few years ago, he moved to Portugal and discovered the Douro Valley, home to some of the world`s most exciting wines. James immediately fell in love with this incredibly beautiful wine country: its majestic landscapes, lovely people and great wines.
