About John Hurley

Jon Hurley has been in the wine industry for more than thirty years. He has a highly expressive writing style that is imbued with his lively sense of humour. He has already written a book on bareknuckle fighter Tom Spring for Tempus and has published a raunchy coming-of-age novel set in rural Ireland. When he is not ferrying his youngest daughter around the country in pursuit of further equestrian honours, Jon runs a wine-weekends business from his Herefordshire home.show more
