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.

Events

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.

    Here at Whitmore & White, we've been working with Chase Distillery in Herefordshire since we opened and have been champions of their brand and their ethos ever since. The Chase Distillery is based on the same farm that grows all of the King Edward, Lady Claire and Lady Rosetta potatoes used to make all Chase spirits, meaning they have a sustainable single-estate "Farm to Bottle" approach.  Continue reading

  • Pairing Wine with Venison

    From October onwards the Venison season is upon us and what a season it is! Magnificent and versatile meat, there are so many delicious ways to cook it - but which wine should you drink with it? You simply must do this wonderful meat justice, so here are my three favourite venison dishes with three perfect wine pairings.  Continue reading

  • Autumn Wine Sale!

    Let's face it, everybody loves a good sale and we're no different - who doesn't love grabbing a bargain?! Wine sales often get a bad press because supermarkets and big online retailers do deals for Chateau Le Spillage and then foist it on you for a bargain price claiming it to be the best thing since crushed grapes! Well here's the thing... it isn't. So we're not doing that...  Continue reading
