I have been working at Majestic since 2013 and in that time have made my way through a bottle or two. Love Riesling, Albarino and Shiraz but also enjoying trying lesser known grapes and searching for the next best thing like Zweigelt or Silvaner.
As the "elder statesman" of the store (which I am regularly reminded of!) you can be forgiven for thinking I may take you straight to a dusty Bordeaux or a fine Burgundy (which I may do if that is what you like). But I rate highly some of the new world wines with USA and South Africa amongst my favourites. I will never say no to a nice glass of fizz - be it a fine Champagne or a glass of Shorn in the sun - it's about experience as much as taste!
Having recently moved back to the North East after a time in London, I love finding new and exciting wines with unique stories behind them, so feel free to ask me what I'm drinking at the minute.
One of the veterans of the team, I started my Majestic career in Hexham before moving a bit closer to home. Back for my second run working in Newcastle come and have a chat about all things wine and beer. I will often be found chatting with customers at the tasting counter, my favourites are Tuscan reds and rich whites, but I also love discovering new and obscure wines so come and find out what latest weird and wacky wines we have in store!
Back from galivanting around the world and picking grapes in Australia, you'll find me drinking a tropical Chenin Blanc or a punchy Burgundian Pinot. The more like a farmyard, the better!
The North East's top Wine Chauffeur
From starting in Majestic in 2018 knowing very little about wine, to training and finding my passion. You'll often find me wherever there is Chardonnay. From a bold, heavily oaked style, to the lighter Chablis style. I love it all. I adore recommending wines to customers that I believe they will love. So, let's see if we can find you a favourite!
Born and bred in the North East, I have worked in Birmingham, Hexham and more recently across the Channel in our Calais stores. I am a big fan of aromatic whites and chunky reds, and of course never say no to a refreshing glass of fizz! I'm always happy to chat about all things wine, and love helping our customers to discover new and exciting wines.
