Anthony Swift

Swift started in the wine tourism industry in 2003 when he created Wine Pleasures based in Spain’s Penedès wine region, also known to many as Cava country. From there he has grown the company from a wine tasting tour operation to an event company for wine importers to meet boutique wine producers from Italy, Portugal and Spain. He also masterminded the now prestigious annual International Wine Tourism Conference (IWINETC). In 2012 he searched the internet for information and panel tastings on Cava and got nothing and so was born the initiative of giving both wine professionals and wine consumers an objective and fair minded annual publication on the world of Premium Cava titled - 50 Great Cavas.
