OUR PEOPLE

Chris Karasavvidis - Trainee Manager, Kew Shop

My interest in wine was sparked about 8 years ago when I moved to England from Australia. At the time I taught music and had performed and recorded with many talented friends and artists. It was only natural that I’d leave the teaching side of the profession to pursue a career in wine as it’s just so delicious, interesting and vast a subject. So 2 years ago, I made the leap and here I am. Pairing food with wine is what really excites me and sharing it with friends and family who think I’m taking it all a bit too seriously. They’ll catch on :)

Brendan Roberts - Assistant Manager, Kew Shop

Having lived in England long enough to see the English win the Ashes and a Scotsman take Wimbledon, my experience has mainly been through iconic restaurants and various wine bars in London after an initial stint in Oxford in 1994.

Cycling to Rome to celebrate my 40th (or was it my 50th?) is the sort of adventure that gets me out of bed , as does Italian and French wine. Old Sangiovese and Pinot Noir from Burgundy delight me no end. Ideally after a game of tennis.

Mark Wrigglesworth - Director/Owner, The Good Wine Shop

My life in the wine trade started when I bought The Good Wine Shop in St Margarets in 2004. Before that wine was a passion and a hobby rather than my living. I had stints with start up businesses before that, in property group specialising in the mobile telecoms sector, as well as establishing and running an American Healthcare company’s UK offices. Having cut my teeth helping set up other people’s businesses I now wanted to venture out on my own and in an area I had a passion for. It was a steep learning curve in the early days but I guess nearly 15 years on we must be getting something right and hopefully we will continue to thrive and grow. I am curious about wine in all its colours, grapes and styles but never like drinking the same thing again and again. Pinot Noir is a passion but so is white burgundy and Riesling too.
