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.

  • Free Local Delivery Update

    If you're one of the hundreds of people who have been using our local delivery service for groceries, wine and spirits since lockdown began, we must start by thanking each and every one of you for supporting our business and of course us! It has been hugely uplifting to have you all rally behind us and carry us through what has been a very tough time for everyone. Going forward, we have decided to keep on doing free local delivery and this will now be a permanent thing that we do, but with a few changes.  Continue reading

  • Stranded in New Zealand at Riverby Estate

    Those of you who shop with us in Frodsham will know Katy, but you may not know that as well as working at Whitmore & White, she and husband Dave also import an outstanding range of wine from New Zealand, all of which you will find on our shelves. Katy was in New Zealand just before lockdown happened visiting one of our favourite wine producers Riverby Estate, and has been "stuck" there ever since! Continue reading

  • W&W Welcomes Hãhã Wines

We can't explain in words quite how fantastic this stuff really is, you're just going to have to try it. And at just £14.95, you should probably try both! Continue reading
