STORE MANAGER - NICK THOMAS
Nick has inhabited the world of wine for so long that Bacchus and Dionysus probably asked him for advice! Nick is older than most of the vines that produce the grapes,that make the amazing wines on our shelves. His roots too go deep! Nick spent 8 years in France with his better half Laura, where they owned and ran a couple of Bar/Restaurants and his love of the European epicurean culture is deep seated. He has also spent a lot of time in Italy and counts as friends so many winemakers and restauranteurs, that he’ll never have to pay for a glass of wine or a meal for the rest of his life!
Nick created and taught a Wine Education Course for Liverpool City council for 5 years,has acted as a consultant for Michelin starred restaurants and has hosted so many tastings he’s lost count! Come in and he will share his passion for both food and wine and will take your taste buds on the most interesting journey they’ve ever been on!
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.
Those of you who shop with us in Frodsham will know Katy, but you may not know that as well as working at Whitmore & White, she and husband Dave also import an outstanding range of wine from New Zealand, all of which you will find on our shelves. Katy was in New Zealand just before lockdown happened visiting one of our favourite wine producers Riverby Estate, and has been "stuck" there ever since! Continue reading
We're thrilled to welcome two new bottles of fabulous New Zealand fizz to Whitmore & White this spring, so we asked Toni Fyvie, European Sales Manager at Hãhã Wine to give us an introduction to the wines and the makers! We can't explain in words quite how fantastic this stuff really is, you're just going to have to try it. And at just £14.95, you should probably try both! Continue reading
With grocery purchasing going into hyperdrive at the moment, many of the supermarkets are running low on goods and restricting customer access. So, if you don’t fancy the queues or even the virtual queues with supermarket websites, take a look at these fantastically super alternative wines to some of the supermarket staples. Yes, they may be a little bit more expensive but quality always shines through. Continue reading
Have you ever wondered how best to store your wine at home? The reality is you don't need a grand cellar with vaulted ceilings (although who wouldn't want one?) but if you're serious about your wine and want it properly kept, you need to find somewhere better than under the stairs! We've joined up with Elite Wine Refrigeration for this edition of our blog, and their guide to wine storage is a great starting point for anyone considering how best to store their bottles!
