The World's Best Sommelier (wine adviser) Gerard Basset was a co-founder of the hugely popular UK hotel chain Hotel Du Vin.
We went down to his latest venture, Hotel TerrVina in the New Forest to see what he's up to now, which is a relaxed venue inspired by his experiences in the Californian wine region of Napa Valley.
Its a mid-market hotel, with a wine list that's very accessible - in his own words you should be able to find an interesting wine on any list for £20.
This follows his desire to make wine as accessible as possible. Much of his own wine education came from the UK which he admires as you can find most of the world's best wines. Not so in France for example where they drink their own produce.
Basically he's saying the UK is a great place to be a wine enthusiast and as our attitudes and demands to quality change, it will only get better.
