Henriques & Henriques Madeira John Cossart dies

Published:  23 July, 2008

John Cossart, chairman of Henriques & Henriques Madeira, passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Cossart died on the island of Madeira, which had been his home since he returned to the Henriques & Henriques Madeira business after the death of his father.

Andrew Hawes, managing director of Mentzendorff, the UK agents for Henriques & Henriques Madeira, said: "all those who know John, and that is a great number in the wine trade, will remember him fondly as one of the great characters in our business.

"His stories of his own life and insights into the development of the international wine trade were fascinating, but more than that he was a lovely man, and we will all miss him greatly," Hawes added.

Cossart's funeral will be held on February 29.
