STORE MANAGER - TOM SCARGILL
DEPUTY MANAGER - OSCAR VALENCIA
Tom has spent ten years working in the wine industry. His first love was Bordeaux but subsequent trips around the world of wine have left him with a fascination at the endless delights possible from fermented grapes! Current favourites are the wines of Portugal, New Zealand and the lesser-known regions of southern France.
Tom’s favourite wine? Whatever suits the meal before him. Matching food and wine is one of his favourite pastimes, so joining the team at Whitmore & White was a natural fit. Tom has since developed his long suspected but hitherto unrealised obsession with cheese. Once again it’s the produce of France that he admires most.
The highlight of any working week for Tom is the opportunity to host a wine tasting. His relaxed but informative approach has proved popular in Frodsham with tastings selling out very quickly. He also makes a mean G&T, so drop by on a Friday night and see what his tipple of the week is.
We have a busy calendar of events here in Frodsham. Whether you're looking for a wine tasting, gin tasting, whisky tasting or Champagne, we host an array of different tastings all year, usually on a Saturday evening. We are regularly visited by wine importers and producers from all over the world who host tastings with us, and we always take the opportunity to show off our fantastic food alongside our wine! Well, why wouldn't we?
You can book places on our forthcoming tasting evenings here online, or call into the shop. You can also purchase Tasting Vouchers to give someone a great experience as a gift!
We also offer private tastings in store for groups, corporate clients and specialist event organisers. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
So, you've tried a few wines, you found a few you like and few you don't. You've moved on from the supermarket to your friendly independent wine merchants (yoohoo!) and have started to explore a whole new world of wine. But how do you really start to learn about the wine in front of you when it comes to making good choices? Continue reading
My wine of the month - El Primero Graciano-Garnacha, Navarra, Spain - is also in my opinion the best value for money red in the range. Graciano and Garnacha are grapes used with Tempranillo to make Rioja but here they take centre stage to produce a juicy fruit-bomb. Continue reading
Johnny Hallyday or the Beatles? Zidane or Beckham? Roast beef or Chateaubriand? Throw in a pinch of Waterloo and a soupçon of Agincourt and we have England Vs France, ye olde rivalry that is showing the green shoots of renaissance within the world of wine. Continue reading
Buffalo Trace has a history that pre-dates most Scottish distilleries. The lush, fertile area on the Kentucky river was already known for it’s moonshiners before in 1787 the Lee’s Town distillery set up shop on the present day site and started shipping whiskey to New Orleans. Continue reading
