Who are we?

Ian - Shop Manager and Wine Buyer

I fell into the wine industry by complete accident 10 years ago because it seemed a "sensible" sort of job. My experience has been a mixture of Hospitality, as a sommelier, and retail. In my time outside wine I love experimenting with cooking and I play as much tennis as the daylight allows.

My wine loves are Pinot Noir and fresh food friendly whites. A lottery winning bottle would probably be a top red Burgundy!

Kathy - Operations Manager  and "Chief Taster"

As the newest member of the team, I come with a background in retail HR and a love of good wine!  As Operations Manager my role is to keep the back office going so the boys can concentrate on the wine.  Though I take my role as chief taster very seriously!


You will often find me sipping on a glass of Malbec as I cook for the family, or a chilled glass of Chardonnay in the garden.  When not savouring the delights of my job, you can find me out on a long run, or at my beloved rugby club playing for the ladies’ team or coaching my son.


We are a small but mighty team, passionate about bringing our love of wine from across the globe to local people, at great prices.  I look forward to meeting all our wonderful customers and sharing a glass or two with you!
