Simon Parkinson Wine
STORE MANAGER - SIMON PARKINSON

Simon has been working in the wine trade all of his working life and has developed a deep understanding of what good wine really is. He has traveled extensively exploring his grapelust, from the warm shores of California to the heart of emerging wine producing countries like Croatia. From Gin Martinis to German Riesling, Simon has a passion for just about everything alcoholic, and is more than happy to talk your ear off about them all!

With a passion for quality wine, and always willing to sacrifice himself for customers by trying everything we sell, he is the perfect person to go to with your drinks questions. Be careful though, not many people talk to Simon and leave without buying at least one bottle of something, such is his enthusiasm! Check out his regular article in Wirral Life magazine, or pop in to West Kirby to find out what he is drinking.

Events

We have a busy calendar of events here in West Kirby. 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 Thursday 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.
