Susie Barrie & Peter Richards are probably best known for their regular wine slots on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen, which goes out to several million hungry viewers every week.
They’re also both Masters of Wine – a rare breed, given there are only about 350 in the world – and even rarer for being married to each other! What with Susie being an ace cook, their Sunday lunches are something to behold…
Susie & Peter are based in Winchester but work internationally, travelling the globe speaking, tasting, hosting and writing about the wonderful world of wine. Between them they have published four books, won several awards (among them the EWP and IWSC Communicators of the Year), appeared on many a TV and radio station (BBC, ITV, Sky One & ESPN) and racked up writing credits including The Guardian, Financial Times, Times Online, FHM, Daily Mail and Decanter.
Susie & Peter are passionate about finding and spreading the news about brilliant wine (at all prices). They consult for airlines, hotels and restaurants as well as regularly hosting live events, including the BBC Good Food Show and The Palate among many others. Wine Festival Winchester is the realisation of their dream to launch their own, fun wine event with a local focus where people can make new wine discoveries in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
When they’re not focusing on wine, Susie’s often to be found with her head in a recipe book or running, while Peter loves his tennis and is currently trying to wean the kids onto The Simpsons without Susie noticing.
You can catch up with Susie & Peter via their website. Among other things, it features their latest top wine tips plus clips of them in action for Saturday Kitchen – even fun titbits of info you might not know about them…
