The prime movers behind Green Planet wines are:
Robert Joseph is author of 27 books on wine, including French Wines, Bordeaux and its Wines and The Complete Encyclopedia of Wine. He also founded the International Wine Challenge and built it into the world’s biggest wine competition. He was described by Decanter Magazine as one of the 50 people who would influence wine drinking in the 21st century.

Hugh Ryman was one of the first “flying winemakers” and has made wine in 10 countries, winning numerous awards. His experience gives him a uniquely broad view of the 21st Century wine world. Hugh lives in Bordeaux and in Bergerac where he owns the Chateau de la Jaubertie and loves the terroirs of France.

Kevin Shaw is a designer whose labels, devised at his Stranger & Stranger studio, have helped to boost sales of wines and spirits ranging from Hendricks Gin to Michel Rolland's Clos de Siete. He is a devoted wine lover himself, with a cellar full of eclectically chosen bottles from both the New and Old World.

Although we have strong (some might say idealistic) views on preserving traditional winemaking, our feet are very much on the ground. Greener Planet Wines is the brainchild of three men with a strong professional interest in winemaking – Robert, Hugh and Kevin. Faced with the prospect of increasing numbers of traditional winemakers and their wines disappearing, we felt that something had to be done. The best way we could find was commercially, working closely with growers to establish an economically and environmentally sustainable basis for their winemaking. Hence, the Green Planet brand. Over the coming years we plan to expand the range of our wines significantly, through our contacts with wine growers around the world. To keep up with our latest news, why not join our mailing list?
