Ben Franks, experienced wine and spirits judge

I’m lucky enough to taste hundreds of wines and spirits each year, developing my knowledge every day. Part of my consultancy involves judging for local, national and international wine and spirits competitions.

Over the years I have specialised in discovering truly unique wines and spirits from all corners of the world. I offer competitions insight into the wines of the Med, Eastern and Central Europe and Asia. I also built my credentials as a journalist in English & Welsh wines.

In the past I have judged the London Wine Competition alongside an array of Masters of Wine and the UK’s leading sommeliers, the Mercian Vineyard Association (MVA), led by David Bird MW, and the Wessex Wine Challenge with Sally Easton MW.

I have also accepted judging roles for various press and media publications, such as The Wine Merchant.
