EP010 - Simon Robinson

Oil Spotted

HEY! We made it to ten episodes! I can’t thank you all enough for listening! Appreciate ya and tell a pal! EPISODE 10! This one is a treat! This week I talk to Simon Robinson and if you don’t know Simon, he has had one of the most wild stories of starting as a zoo keeper to being a production coordinator for Slipknot. Simon has worn many hats as a Merch manager, production coordinator, and tour manager for such artists as Skindred, Coal Chamber, Devil Driver, At The Drive in, Bring Me The Horizon, and Slipknot. We talk about his journey from the zoo to working for Slipknot and how he is holding up through the pandemic in the UK. We also talk about the Iowa State Fair and how it is a far superior fair to all fairs. Enjoy!

#018 Simon Robinson - Hattingley Sparkling & Wines GB Chairman

Humans of Hospitality

British wine use to have a reputation, but not one we wanted. Now it's taking on the French at their own game with some of the best sparkling in the world. As chair of Wine GB Simon is the perfect guest to chat to to find out why and how. If you’d said to Simon Robinson in 2008 that his Hattingley Valley vineyards would have the capacity – in a really good year – to produce 580,000 bottles of wine…or that his sparkling rose would be crowned a world champion, he would have said you were crackers. And yet, in just over a decade, Hattingley  and other GB newcomers have done brilliantly in what is a very old industry…even though in the early days our efforts were written off as being poor copies of German varieties like Riesling and  Muller-Thergau.    In this conversation you’ll discover why our sparkling wines are now doing so well and why Simon calls his sector ‘agriculture on steroids’:  it will make your eyes water when you do and you’ll wonder why on earth he gave up his partner position at a city law firm to go on such a rollercoaster...
