Hi, I’m Sean, I started Oakmonkey out of a love for wine and a passion for helping fellow wine consumers make easier and less intimidating decisions about which wines to try and buy.
I’m an unbiased industry outsider with no formal wine training – just loads of battle scarred liquid experience. In fact, I’m just like you, an everyday wine consumer, looking to discover great, reasonably priced bottles to try, buy and share (well, sometimes).
Let’s face it, there’s a lot of wine noise out there and it can be difficult to cut through all the chatter to find true value, what I affectionately refer to as Diamonds in the Rough.
This site is dedicated to my local quest for these elusive gems and a commitment to you to share my 100% unbiased thoughts uncorking and experiencing them.
Looking forward to exploring with you!
