"I have known Alain for over 20 years and his advice has held true. Periodically he has provided me with an excellent service, advising me on the drinking windows of my more valuable Bordeaux wines. His review of my cellar allowed me to make more of what vintages to invest in going forward and what wines to lay in for personal everyday consumption. l can highly recommend him for his knowledge, passion and discretion."
"From Tetsuya to Gordon Ramsay restaurants and around the World, Alain Lee has provided his loyal following with expert advice and service. My own friendship and experience with him has been extensive for many years. His knowledge in telling the story of wine thru wine workshops and wine dinners is enthusiastically conveyed and infectious."

This combination ensures that time spent in his company is guaranteed to be both informative and importantly, entertaining."

"I have known Alain Lee since we met in 1994 when we worked together at Level 41, a then celebrated restaurant known for its outstanding wine list. Alain was instrumental in the sales and service of wine; I remember him as kind and generous with his knowledge which made a big difference to me. I wish him all the very best."

"Alain’s knowledge about champagne is vast, but it is the way that he delivers that information and peppers it with his own personal stories and journey that makes it an experience to remember.....We really enjoyed the session. It was relaxed, engaging, very sociable and we met a lot of interesting people. We would certainly be keen to keep exploring the world of bubbles and wine with Alain."
