Robert Barton as imagined by Rupert Ponsonby…
Robert Barton of Hurlingham: That great pontificator, Winnie the Pooh, once opined with considerable depth: “Sometimes I sit and think. Other times I just sit.” Well, Rob’s deep thinking occurs not only when seated but also when he is pounding the roads, and it inspires him to pen a gallimaufry of beautiful words on all things vinous in the fashion of a tiptop copyrighter or poet.
He arrives weekly at the office and sits in his allotted chair and grunts. We think that grunting is rather good, and that being ‘gruntled‘ is definitely on our play list.
Young Rosamund really likes him and says he is an accomplished cook.
What’s your drink of choice?
A refreshing lager, a juicy Pinot Noir or for special occasions my cousin’s Château Léoville Barton.
