“Undoubtedly the most potent – and charismatic – force in wine media today.”


Joe Fattorini is the charismatic host and expert on The Wine Show, the world's most popular wine television program. He's also an experienced wine merchant, having supplied restaurants, celebrities, and even royalty, and was the wine consultant to the US PGA Tour. On The Wine Show Joe shared the world of wine with over 100 million viewers as he trained as a sommelier in China, performed wine standup comedy in Hollywood, and ran a wine marathon in Bordeaux. A winner of Wine Personality of the Year, today Joe takes audiences behind the scenes of the wine world. How to sound like an expert in 90 seconds. How he lost the actor Dominic West in a vat of grapes. And what it's like to be trapped in a wine barrel. Joe is an audience favorite in person, with a crowd, or on screen. As one client put it, "You will not find a finer, or funnier, wine speaker."

Speaking Topics - 

Everything you want from a wine speaker… and so much more. Here are just three recent presentations and events Joe has done to give you an idea. If it's wine-related, he can make it phenomenal.


"The Secrets of the Sommelier"

Joe takes you beyond the best wines and how to enjoy them. He'll take you behind the scenes of London's most exclusive wine merchant, into the cellars of the rich and famous, and around the world with his Wine Show co-stars, tasting wine from 1791 to drinking wine with German princes. An unforgettable experience.


"A History of the World…  in Wine" 

Did you know Queen Victoria was the world's first wine influencer? That President Nixon lied about what he was drinking. That President Reagan had America's first temperature-controlled wine cellar. Joe "Factoring" is famed for his extraordinary knowledge of the obscure, wonderful, and revealing facts about wine and woven together in a brilliant and captivating talk.


"The Wine Anatomist

Joe dissects the wines you buy and explains why you buy them. Drawing on more than 30 years as one of the UK's top wine merchants, Joe reveals the tricks and techniques people use to get you to buy that bottle from labels to names to numbers. 


Joe hosts virtual and live tastings for law firms, media organizations, large banks, and consultancies. He has never been booked only once. To this day, every client has rebooked Joe for a second event.

“Joe has been a regular fixture at our Queens Tennis Club wine events over a number of years. Without doubt, he rather than the wine has been the bigger draw and where we have received the most comments. His style, connection to the audience which is a big mix of ages, never fails to engage, entertain and inform. We wouldn't run out events without him”

Oliver Black, Managing Director My Family Care

“Joe, I wanted to thank you personally for making our evening so enjoyable. Our Clients thoroughly enjoyed their evening and everything worked perfectly. It is a tough act to follow for next year – so we have set ourselves a real challenge. I hope to see you again soon.”

Lindsey Arnall, FWD Marketing

“What a fantastic evening/event. We have been running this client event for approximately 5 years and I have to say, this is the best one by far which is all thanks to Joe Fattorini who is a fantastic entertainer and wine expert – clients found him really engaging. I’m not really sure how we are going to top this for next year – we may have to bring Joe back again!”

Lisa Sanders, PA and organiser of client event, CBRE

“I'm very serious when I say your wine dinner at Sugarloaf was one of the most memorable I've ever done. Really. When can we do more of those?! When I told you I was going to theme it around "the best of Argentina", highlighting a particular Catena Malbec....and within 15 minutes you called the vineyard and had a case of the exact same 10yr old Malbec being overnighted to us.....I knew we were in for a treat”

Kent James, Tournament Players Club, Sugarloaf, Atlanta
