Howard Widdison

Product Information Manager

Howard 2018

Howard joined us in September 2014, having spent much of his working life wandering aimlessly not quite knowing what to do career wise but acquiring a broad skillset along the way.

He stumbled into the wine industry by accident after taking a position at the 5 Star Grand Hotel Eastbourne, where he spent 10 years managing the busy goods-in department, focussing on developing the hotels wine list after completing the WSET Advanced course and studying towards the Diploma, all the while working with Alliance Wine as a customer.

Liaising with our many producers to collate information on the wines, Howard maintains the Product Information Database and website (which comes naturally as a bit of a tech geek).

A keen photographer, Howard loves spending time out in the countryside around his home town of Eastbourne with his daughter, often at very unearthly hours of the morning trying to chase the sunrise for that perfect shot!
