About the host... Nicholas Buck

Born into the wine industry, Nicholas tasted too many great wines at an impressionable age and has since been unwilling to consider any other career. A graduate of Massey University's Bachelor of Business Studies degree, Nicholas worked in wine retail and distribution within New Zealand before diving into the deep end of the UK wine trade in the mid-1990s.

Nicholas worked for a London-based wine importer and distributor whilst completing his Wine & Spirit Education Trust Diploma. During this period, he never declined an opportunity to taste his way through the wines of Europe. Continuing in London, Nicholas then began to import and distribute French wine for a group of 140 UK restaurants.

After two years of listening to restaurateurs discussing wine, Nicholas decided that he needed to get back to wine production. He spent the following vintage as an intern at Chateau Margaux before returning to Te Mata Estate. Since 2000, Nicholas has been responsible for all aspects of Te Mata's sales and marketing and was made a director of the company in 2003. In 2010, Nicholas became Chairman of Hawkes Bay Winegrowers.

Nicholas lives in Hawkes Bay with his partner, Florence, and their three children, Thomas, Aston and Lucie Belle.
