About Me


Hi, my name is Dave Cronin – AKA Ivorfan. (As a life long Fulham Supporter Gordon Davies (Ivor) was and still is my all time favourite player hence my nickname – Twitter name). I was also known as Spikedc on the Tesco Wine Community site, unfortunately no longer around.

Over the last few years I have drunk some wonderful and not so wonderful wines. Trying to understand the complexities of wine is a vast subject, I realise I’ve only just scratched the surface but I am starting to appreciate what I’m drinking more and more, maybe it’s an age thing, who knows!

My favourite reds are Spanish, Rioja, especially. Coming from a Spanish background it’s the wine I drink most but I do like most reds.  Amongst my favourite whites are  Verdejo, Albarino, Godello, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay and Riesling. Come to think of it there’s not a lot I don’t like.

In this blog I’ll attempt to give you my honest personal opinions on what I’ve been drinking but I must stress these are only my views, I’m a very long way from being a so called ‘expert’, just a keen amateur who loves wine and you must remember everyone’s Palates are different so what I like you may not.

I will also feature book reviews and other wine related and some non wine related subjects.
I give simple Cork rating out of 10 for each wine or wine related item.


Drink along with me, leave a comment and let me know what you think !

    Thanks for that great review of our tasting day at Bosworth Hall. Robert and I also enjoyed it.
    Got a feeling we may have meet at the Emirates Stadium. We did a beer tasting there for the Fulham derby earlier in the year?
