Hello lovely Ashbourne customers, I'm Dave the store Manager here. I've worked within Majestic for 15 years across both East & West Midlands having started in 2005. A lover of big bold Aussie Shiraz's having worked at Two Hands Wines and equally Big Buttery New World Chardonnay's. A Leeds United fan, but lets not hold that against me, love snowboarding & motor racing to name a few passions Why not pop in and say Hello...
Hi all in Ashbourne! The resident South African wine guru originally from Pretoria with years of experience in a traditional "Liquor store". Find great pleasure in trying wines from all over the world, particularly enjoying big Italian reds, Malbecs and rich white Burgundy's. Come down for some wine and information regarding your next trip to sunny SA.
I first became interested in wine upon moving to Alsace after university. The changing seasons, the harvest and the drink itself was often the subject of conversation around the dinner table. My interest was piqued after moving to Burgundy where I fell head over heels for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Before joining Majestic Ashbourne, I worked as a sommelier in several of the UK’s top fine dining establishments, where I continued to develop my knowledge of the world’s wines. Aside from an obvious passion for all things ‘grape,’ I love hiking, skiing and any opportunity to travel.
