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 20 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.
Graham 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 usually have a busy calendar of tasting events here in Heswall, from Saturday cooking demonstrations to ticketed evening wine tastings, but we have paused everything during the pandemic. Check back once things start to get back to normal!
