Job Title: Retail Manager

Role: Dealing with our lovely customers in all of our shops, providing advice, guidance, and wine. Also writing producer profile for the website and descriptions for our wonderful collection of wine.

Interests: I have a love for literature, the countryside and hiking, and anything alcohol related, particularly wine and gin.

Likes: Long dog walks on a Sunday, festivals and live music in the summer, and visiting the Scottish islands

Dislikes: The traffic in Oxford and the mispronunciation of words

If you could be served any food/dish what would it be? Pasta bake, homemade burgers, and anything that involves cheese

If you were a wine which one would it be? Probably a pink sparkling rosé, I love the colour pink and definitely love some sparkle

What do you like about working with The Oxford Wine Company? The diversity of staff and customers and discovering everyone's favourite wines

What is your most diverse achievement? Gold medalist at National Schools Regatta and captain of my university boat club

Which are your most favoured wines? It depends on the occasion, but I like a red Côtes-du-Rhône on a cold winter evening or a light Chardonnay on a summer's day. I have many other wines to explore so ask me again in a few months!
