How James Suckling became an international Wine critic ?

Here a quick interview to understrand how He felt in love with wine:

“James Suckling is one of today’s leading wine critics, whose views are read and respected by wine lovers, serious wine collectors, and the wine trade worldwide. He is currently the wine editor for Asia Tatler and its nine luxury magazines in the region, including Hong Kong Tatler, China Tatler, Singapore Tatler, and Thailand Tatler. He reaches more than 2 million readers in Asia each month.

However, most of his time is spent working for his own website,, as well as promoting his 100 point wine glasses with Lalique, the famous French crystal house.

Suckling spent nearly 30 years as Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of The Wine Spectator, and as European Editor of Cigar Aficionado. On his departure from the magazines, Forbes called the Los Angeles-born writer “one of the world’s most powerful wine critics”.” (source:
