STORE MANAGER - TOM SCARGILL
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.
Today is St. David's Day, a day of daffodils, leeks and dragons which means it must be time for us to stand well back and let Graham slip into another of his Cheese Moments. Graham often waxes lyrical about the time he cooked a midnight feast of cheese on toast for Gruffudd ap Llywelyn whilst working as the royal poisoner of wine goblets in the court of Edward the Confessor, The only cheese fit for a king? Why, Caerphilly of course! Continue reading
Beyond my family, the two biggest passions in my life are music and wine. So I was rather excited when I was asked to do a series of blogs partnering the grape and the groove! Far more than food and wine matching, this is a very subjective topic, which will hopefully be made even more intriguing as both W&W’s range of wine, and my music taste are pretty eclectic.

Has it really been a whole month since the delight of Graham's January Cheese Moment? This month, Graham has mainly been dreaming about his previous life as a jester in the court of Louis XIV of France, who paid him personally in cheese. Whilst he may have shed the bells on his toes, Graham is still paid his salary in cheese. This month, he's rich with Langres. Continue reading
When it comes to gin, particularly those gins lucky enough to be coupled with the word ‘craft’, I think there’s a collective desire amongst many drinkers for a provenance that involves some rustic alchemist who resides just down the lane from Frodo in middle earth. Alas, the pretty bottle with ‘small batch’ and ‘artisan’ plastered all over its label, is all too often Continue reading
