With a long-standing family history involved in selling wine, Elliot Awin now too works in the wine trading industry, running a wine importing business with his father @abswine, and is one of four founding members of the successful sell-out organic wine from Provence @qvvines 

Elliot was also a keen rugby player, but almost 7 years ago now, everything changed. He woke up in the middle of the night with his heart rate racing ~220 beats a minute. After being told to go straight to A&E by the GP, and after seeing many different cardiologists, he was later diagnosed with Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), Atrial fibrillation (AF), and Wolff-Parkinson-White-Syndrome, a heart condition that causes the heart to beat abnormally fast for periods of time.

Elliot was recently fitted with a Pacemaker in 2020 and subsequently had to stop playing rugby, but this has not stopped Elliot from partaking in competitive sport, as he is now training to row across the Atlantic, alone….

In this episode, we discuss:


Why wine?
Passion for rugby and competitive sport
When everything changed with a heart condition diagnosis
Elliot’s current exercise regime and finding a new love for CrossFit
Discipline + training for the world’s toughest rowing race across the Atlantic Ocean in 2023
Finding the balance through ‘conscious consumption'

Confused as to what wine to pick up off the shelf in a supermarket, or what to take to your next dinner party? Elliot hosts weekly social wine tasting or more structured private sessions to demystify wine in any way he can, Find full details here: https://elliot.wine/bookings
