Joe Fattorini

Joe Fattorini is known around the world as “Obi Wine Kenobi” the expert presenter on The Wine Show (2016-20). If you’ve enjoyed wine somewhere between Wick and Whitstable in the UK, Joe was probably involved too, as he’s one of the UK’s leading wine merchants. He has supplied restaurants, celebrities, and even royalty. He has also worked alongside legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson!

Today, Joe guides 250 million viewers in 107 countries through The Wine Show, alongside co-presenters Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys.

He has been called “The Attenborough of Oddbins” by The Guardian, and one client said, “you will not find a finer, or funnier, wine speaker”. He has also been featured as the highest placed media figure in the annual 100 Most Influential People in Wine by Drinks Retailing News.

Contact Great British Speakers today to book wine expert TV presenter & speaker Joe Fattorini for your next event.

The UK’s finest – and funniest – wine speaker. Joe made me fall off my perch laughing. Pure brilliance.

Thank you for being such a star and helping to make the dinner great fun and a great success.
Joy Moss, Patron, Jewish Child’s Day

What a fantastic evening/event. We have been running this client event for approximately 5 years and I have to say, this is the best one by far which is all thanks to Joe Fattorini who is a fantastic entertainer and wine expert – clients found him really engaging. I’m not really sure how we are going to top this for next year – we may have to bring Joe back again!

Joe, I wanted to thank you personally for making our evening so enjoyable. Our Clients thoroughly enjoyed their evening and everything worked perfectly. It is a tough act to follow for next year – so we have set ourselves a real challenge. I hope to see you again soon.
Emma Davies, Managing Director of Planning, CBRE

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the events last week…you really held the night together and everyone loved you! I’m sure I will be in contact about others gigs very soon.

I’m very serious when I say your wine dinner at Sugarloaf was one of the most memorable I’ve ever done. Really. When can we do more of those?! When I told you I was going to theme it around “the best of Argentina”, highlighting a particular Catena Malbec….and within 15 minutes you called the vineyard and had a case of the exact same 10yr old Malbec being overnighted to us…..I knew we were in for a treat.

Joe has been a regular fixture at our Queens Tennis Club wine events over a number of years. Without doubt, he rather than the wine has been the bigger draw and where we have received the most comments. His style, connection to the audience which is a big mix of ages, never fails to engage, entertain and inform. We wouldn’t run out events without him.
