Hi my name's Chris and I am now in my tenth year working for Weavers. Having worked on the retail side of the wine trade for a number of years, I began as a sales assistant in the Weavers shop. I'm now involved in many other aspects of the business including buying, selling, online sales and helping Philip run our ever-popular Wine Club. My favourite thing about working in the wine trade is just how much there is to learn when it comes to wines, spirits and liqueurs. The fact that 'you can never know it all', is the most motivating part of my professional life.
When it comes to my favourite wines it is ever-changing. At the moment I'm really enjoying the Germanic and Alsatian white grape varieties, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. On the red side, I've recently fallen back in love with Italian wines, especially those from Puglia and Sicily in the south; see below for some of my recommendations.
