Antony le Ray-Cook
I was very sorry to learn this morning that wine and food writer and broadcaster, Tony le Ray-Cook, has died. He was found dead in his Pimlico flat (London) on Tuesday morning. He would have been 70 in December.
Tony was a special character – an enthusiast with a great love for the good things in life. He was also an early internet pioneer founding his Wine & Dine site back in February 1995. I'm particularly grateful to Tony as he allowed me to post details about dubious wine investment companies on his site before I set up investdrinks in April 2000. Tony will be sadly missed.
