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.

"It’s not often you go on holiday, and come home having bought a pallet of wine. The perils of being a wine importer can be expensive but hey, it’s a filthy job, and someone has to apply themselves!" Not your average souvenir agreed, but these sensational Waverley Hills wines, well off the beaten tourist trail on this gorgeous vineyard could not be ignored! UK importer Katy Paddle of Black Dog Wine Agency tells us more... Continue reading
Something bold, exciting and a little bit sensual has been causing quite a stir here at Whitmore & White these past few weeks. All the way from the land down under, where women glow and men plunder, we have acquired two absolutely phenomenal wines from a group of three friends who decided to combine their skills and make game-changing wine crammed full with as much charisma and sass as they are. The guilty suspects? None other than Some Young Punks. Continue reading
Port: that rich, silky, heady elixir that’s been a staple of the British festive dining table for centuries. For many, a bottle of Port coupled with a fragrant array of cheese is the gastronomic highlight of Christmas day. But there are many different types of Port, and a whole world of cheese out there, so which Port suits which cheese? Is it all just about Stilton? Luckily as purveyors of fine cheese and Port, we have the answers! But first, what is Port and where does it come from? Continue reading
