Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber recently discovered he had a terrible problem (and not for the first time in his adult life apparently), when he found that he owned too much wine!
Wouldn’t it be splendid to have a large enough wine collection that one could satisfy ones thirst for any particular wine, from any wine producing region of the world, at any given time? If that was the case in Vinoland I definitely could have chosen to have a Lambrusco with my Pastisio the other night. Unfortunately, there is always a scarcity of Italian wines in my wine cellar, because they get polished off very soon after arriving in Vinoland.
Sir Andrew is a very fortunate man to have access to, and the means to purchase, many world renowned wines: and to have made such shrewd and intelligent investment choices by purchasing case after case of them. Now, I consider myself a wine enthusiast, but Sir Andy loves wine in a way I couldn’t possibly begin to and he has taken his personal appreciation of wine to a higher level - he loves to make money from reselling it.
A passion for fine wine, a talent for writing catchy tunes, a savvy business acumen, a recent bank deposit for £3.5 million – Sir Drew and I don’t have a lot in common, but we do share a birthday (with John Toshack).
