recently earning a diploma from WSET (kind of a CFA for wine, and the entry-
level qualification for becoming a Master of Wine - for which the only

and other wine experts for Berry Bros in Hong Kong.

Herald van der Linde, also known as “The Flying Dutchman” and Michael Gilmore are old friends. While Michael had spent his time building a beer gut, Herald had spent his not just working through Asia’s financial markets, but had also become a wine expert, earning a teaching diploma from the WSET, and running courses for the highly respected Berry Bros and Rudd around Asia in his spare time.If anyone could teach Michael about wine, in an intelligent but unpretentious way, it would have to be Herald. So they began exchanging emails, gradually copying in friends, some colleagues and clients, people they met in bars around the world – and anyone else who wanted to learn along.
