Head of National Accounts
Iain looks after National Accounts across the country. Iain came
to the wine trade after a successful career in sales and a 3 year
stint working for himself wielding an axe for a living. His passion
for wine and food were developed at a very young age through his
father's delicatessen and mothers catering company which meant his
lunchbox would be more likely to contain Baklava and smelly French
cheese than a Club and cheese strings. A 3 month "honeymoon"
visiting 50 wineries across France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland and
Germany sealed his fate and Iain waved goodbye to the real world
and moved into wine. Iain joined the wine trade working for a
successful regional wholesaler and then moved to working for a
leading French and German specialist importer where he sold to
independent merchants and developed an expensive taste for
Chassagne Montrachet and Grosse Gewächs Riesling. He also found
time to complete his WSET Diploma.
Iain continues to travel as much as possible, both for wine and
food and his new found love of freediving. If you ever need someone
to hold their breath for four and a half minutes Iain's your man!
When not starving his brain of oxygen at 30m Iain also participates
in muddy obstacle races with his wife, attempts not to poison
people with his cooking and is a member of a secretive London based
blind tasting group.
