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.

And with the wealth Continue reading
Christmas tunes: some people love them, some people not so much. Personally, if I never hear Mariah Carey’s cash cow again that would be just fine! But I ain’t no humbug; I love a bit of ‘Winter Wonderland’, East 17’s cringy ‘Stay Another Day’ makes me feel bewilderingly nostalgic, and I get misty-eyed at the final verse of ‘Fairytale Of New York’.

Great jingling bells of fire! We've only gone and reopened our Chester shop for Christmas! If we gloss over the past eight months, it's almost as if we never left. The response to the news that we're making a come back on Godstall Lane has been quite astonishing! Continue reading
