"Discovering The Wine Buff was a "Eureka!" moment for me.

I have been a fan of wine since the early '90's. I picked up a taste while working and travelling in Russia, Australia and Europe. In later years, I struggled with heartburn, sinus problems and nasty headaches from the wine I was buying in Ireland. I also noticed that these things didn't affect me on holidays. Then one day, I happened to be passing a Wine Buff Shop and bought a bottle of Arboreto Montepulcianno. It tasted like being on holidays!

The wine was easy to drink and caused no heartburn or blocked sinuses and I had a clear head in the morning. Six months later, after "researching" several more wines, I opened a shop in Portlaoise with the Wine Buff range of wines.
