STORE MANAGER - DR. GRAHAM SIMPSON
Graham is manager of our Heswall store and also our Wines and Spirits Buyer. He has worked in the wine trade for 17 years, and most of those have been spent in Heswall with various wine merchants. But he’s not always been in the business. After giving up his life as a research chemist, his career in the wine trade started when he walked into a branch of Oddbins in Liverpool looking to buy a bottle of wine and came out with a job. Serendipity indeed. But sometimes academia can be difficult to completely put behind you, and Graham has now studied to Level 4 Diploma with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust.
He has a passion for all things wine and spirit based. For him it is a vocation and he has been fortunate to have visited some of the best wine making regions on his quest to bring great wine to the public. Graham runs regular wine tastings in the Heswall store and they are always informal but informative. He also hosts private tastings so please get in touch for further information. Many of you who know Graham will also know that he is very keen on food and wine matching, something which being part of Whitmore and White allows him to test his gastronomic and vinous abilities.
We have a busy calendar of events here in Heswall. 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 Friday 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.

We like to keep you all on your toes here at W&W, so we're thrilled to welcome plenty of new wines onto our shelves this month! In the first part of our four-part blog series about some of our new wines we are having a bit of a round the world trip to introduce the first six. We’ll visit Germany and Italy in Europe then hop over to Australia for a trio of reds followed by a voyage across the Pacific to Chile’s coast. Continue reading
I think it’s safe to say that here at Whitmore & White we are huge fans of the wines of multi award-winning Vina Casa Silva in Chile. Established in 1997 by Mario Pablo Silva and his father and based in the Colchagua Valley, in a very short space of time this family-run estate is projecting outwards to some of the surrounding areas to bring us wine-lovers a very special range of wines.

Neptune rises from the deep and brings us his bounty of…. Beer???
Neptune Brewery was founded in 2015 by friends Les and Geoff, and quickly developed from a bit of fun to a full time job. So far they have been voted as the Top Merseyside Brewery 2018 by RateBeer and the sky is truly the limit for these pioneers of quality real ales. Continue reading
