Patrick Sandeman dies in sky diving accident

Very shocked and sad to discover this afternoon that Patrick Sandeman of the highly respected Lea & Sandeman wine shops in London died in a sky diving accident on Saturday. It is particularly shocking as I saw Patrick and chatted to him at the Bunch tasting recently (Thursday 13th September).
