A graduate of Cambridge University, Mark Bingley has devoted his professional career to the wine trade. Although his first career plan was to become a lawyer, a temporary job in the wine trade fired a passion for wine. Abandoning his dry legal training he started working for a City of London Wine Merchant and then joined H Parrot (UK Agency House for Veuve Clicquot, Louis Latour, Trimbach, Chapoutier, etc) and started studying for the Master of Wine qualification, joining the Institute in 1983. In 1986 Mark was a founding Director of Maisons Marques et Domaines Ltd, the UK Agency House of Champagne Louis Roederer, and today represents many of the greatest private family estates of the wine world. He chaired the Institute of Masters of Wine European Events Committee until 2020.
