The Wine Show is not Joe's first time on television.Twenty years ago BBC North filmed 'Joe's Diner', a series of short films on the history of Yorkshire food. Joe followed this with varied presenting appearances with BBC Scotland and BBC Choice's cult music show 'The Beat Room'.
BBC Radio Scotland listeners know Joe's voice well from his weekly appearances as a roving reporter and studio guest on The Fred MacAulay Show. Joe hosted Radio Scotland's flagship personal finance programme, 'It's Your Money' for three years as well as presenting programmes on politics, business, social affairs and politics. Joe's natural ease on radio possibly comes from his early experience on pirate radio whilst still at school when he was just sixteen.
'TV Presenter with genuine, natural authority. Affable voice with light Northern feel'. Joe's voice is naturally conversational. It carries a sense of a rich, travelled experience. Joe can lift a script with humour or deliver a message with gravitas.
At an Argentine wine conference Joe challenged the simultaneous translators with his references to Coronation Street. But his speech is still remembered by delegates for mixing authority with captivating delivery. Joe speaks to WIs, at dinners, for companies and at corporate events. He delivers keynote industry speeches with authority and entertainment for wine lovers. He is a noted lecturer to businesses on how to captivate audiences when public speaking.
Stuart Heritage in The Guardian described Joe’s performance in The Wine Show as “a revelation, arguably the Attenborough of Oddbins… turning a throwaway 10-minute segment about Napoleon’s favourite booze into a genuinely compelling piece of television.” IMDB reviewers have praised his performance too. “Joe Fattorini is a Gem!!” who “does a marvellous job keeping it all together”. “Joe Is getting better and better, this is a guy marked for good things.”
