STORE MANAGER - TOM SCARGILL
Tom has spent twelve 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 Chester with tastings selling out very quickly.
We have a busy calendar of events here in Chester. Whether you're looking for a wine tasting, gin tasting, whisky tasting or Champagne, we host an array of different tastings all year. 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.

In response to this seemingly insatiable desire for gin, it would have been irresponsible of me as a purveyor of fine wine and spirits, not to have guzzled a boatload of the stuff on your behalf. It’s another of my duties here at Whitmore & White that I file under ‘it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it’. Continue reading
As is often the case with wine, the label is the first thing that hits you. We can’t think of any other wines out there with a couple of space cats on the label! So what's the story behind the label? In 1963 the French entered the space race and were the first to send a cat travelling into space. Her name was Félicette. The Félicette wines pay homage to their namesake, memorialising a famous cat held in great esteem in France. Continue reading
