Sir Ian Botham has spent over 40 years both playing in and commentating on International Cricket. During this time he has travelled the world and spent time nurturing his real non-sporting passion, wine and the art of creating it.
He has visited vineyards and wineries from the cool climates of Tasmania and New Zealand to the wine producing melting pots of South Africa and Australia. Not only has he built up an enviable collection at home, his knowledge and appreciation for the process of making wine is first class.
Over the years, he has found his favourite winemaking spots and working with some of the most renowned winemakers from those regions, he has personally hand selected parcels of wine that, to him, best represent that region and varietal.
