STORE MANAGERS - JACQUES TUNNICLIFFE & 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 Frodsham with tastings selling out very quickly. He also makes a mean G&T, so drop by on a Friday or Saturday 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.
These wonderful wines are made by sister and brother team, Heidi and Roman, at Weingut Pfaffl in the Weinviertel region of Austria, in certified sustainable vineyards around Vienna (or Mozartworld as Disney would have it!). Their range of wines have won more awards than you can shake a stick at and they were recently voted European Winery of the Year - and it’s easy to see why. Continue reading
One of the latest additions to our wine portfolio are the Ranch 32 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Scheid Family. The name Ranch 32 relates to the place where Al Scheid (pictured with the Scheid family and team) planted his first vines in California’s Monterrey County in 1972. At the time, winemaking was still in its infancy in California Continue reading
Port and cheese is just so quintessentially British isn’t it? And it's never more so than at Christmas time when sales of both sky-rocket! Putting the festive tradition aside for a minute, with the style ranging from white Port, through aged Tawny styles and onto single vineyard and vintage Ports, there’s no reason why Port shouldn’t be consumed at any time of year! 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’.
