The Broadbent Connection

Two weeks ago, at the Wine Media Guild’s annual dinner in New York, Bartholomew Broadbent spoke on behalf of his legendary father Michael Broadbent on the occasion of his induction to the Guild’s Hall of Fame. He recently posted video of his speech on the Broadbent Selections Facebook page, and it’s well worth watching: The speech displays all the intelligence, wit, and charm that have made the Broadbent family such an important one in the world of wine, from Michael’s role at Christie’s and as an esteemed writer and critic, to Bartholomew’s as the head of one of the most exciting wine importing firms in the world.

The video is linked up right here. Pay particular attention to Bartholomew’s description of his father’s tendency to not drink: If this is a teetotaling lifestyle, then it’s one that we all should aspire to.
