Bio
Christopher Cooper Wine & Drinks Expert | Bio | Sarah Bayliss Photography Ltd
Christopher’s quirky, witty and refreshing approach to wine and the broader spectrum of consumable liquids is causing a real stir in the drinks industry. As the UK’s most innovative up-and-coming drinks expert, his commentary and palate are well established and highly respected. Cooper founded the successful drinks consultancy, Drinkonomics in 2014; providing wine buying expertise, drinks guidance, written content and tasting masterclasses for hospitality, the drinks industry and consumers. Sipping, spitting, writing and speaking; Christopher basically drinks wine for a living… nice! A renowned public speaker, Christopher is celebrated for his conviviality, three dimensional kinetic style and vibrant presentation. He connects directly to the modern Briton about arduous vino-culture with his easy-going engaging informative attitude. Wincing at winespeak, Cooper is clearing the cryptic wine clutter by simplifying people's taste understanding with his brand of plain-English drinks dialogue. He's the wine man for every man (and woman). Vastly knowledgeable, with a pedigree in fine restaurants, Christopher puts his experience of being shouted at by Gordon Ramsay and ridiculed by French Sommeliers to good use as he divulges to viewers, readers and consumers, his trade secrets and expert advice. “I want to taste the world and tell everyone what it tastes like” he says... whilst above all, supporting quality over quantity. As a regular contributor to trade & consumer publications, his frequent appearances as the subject of editorial features and now with his television and book treatments in development, Cooper is a rising star and is quickly becoming a drinks culture reference point. His goal is to help us discover how to properly taste wine, how to really understand it and ensure that we all get that same ‘wow!’ reaction that he does, every single time. Christopher Cooper is serving up proper wine chat for the new taste generation. When not living a liquid life, Christopher spends his spare time dachshund spotting, chasing his son, drooling over classic cars and shopping for shoes; in that order.

Christopher Cooper is the UK’s most innovative up-and-coming drinks expert. On screen, Christopher successfully conveys the often dreary or non-televisual subject of wine and drinks in his own exciting and dynamic manner. Cooper's burgeoning media profile is gaining pace as his commentary and palate have become increasingly well established and highly respected. With his trademark awkward edgy-ness and quirky camera confidence, Christopher's screen craft is maturing nicely; and with many TV programmes and themes in development, Christopher's screen creativity doesn't stand still. Showreel coming soon...
Audio

The rather crazy medium of wine radio is taking on a new form with Christopher creating bespoke channel focused live on-air wine tastings for online radio channels and consumer FM radio shows. We'll tell you what to go out and buy then simply open your wines for a live and interactive taste-along. Christopher is also developing a series of downloadable audio podcasts so you can listen and learn on the go, at your own pace and in your own time. Coming soon...
