I first began working for Rare Wine Vintages in September of 2013. My younger child had just started full time school and I was looking to return to the workplace. Having studied law at Birmingham University and then practised as a commercial property specialist in the city for eight years, before my two children were born, I was excited to be given a chance to change direction completely and begin to develop an understanding of wine beyond just enjoying drinking it!
It is very exciting being involved with a fledgling company and the challenges and opportunities that brings. One of my favourite parts of the job is when we can fulfil a special order for someone. For example, at Christmas a customer living in New York, selected a very special bottle to be delivered to his father in the Highlands of Scotland, however the real surprise was that he was going to arrive in order to share that bottle with him.
I love watching the expertise of our group of buyers. Wine is such a dense subject and there is always more to learn.
We have a truly wonderful selection of the very highest quality wine from all across Europe which are carefully individually sourced.
I would love to find the next special bottle that you drink
