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.

  • Been one of those days? Would a glass of wine help?

    We’ve all been there haven’t we? Stuck in a Bank Holiday traffic jam for five hours and when we finally get home all we want to do is crack open a bottle of wine/beer/gin/whisky/vodka/cup of tea (delete as appropriate) and relax.
