OUR PEOPLE

Col Grandfield – Store Manager, Kew

I arrive at The Good Wine Shop on top of a career of over ten years at the cutting edge of London’s hospitality scene, with over 5 years in a wine-focused capacity. I am passionate about small-production wines using organic farming and minimal intervention in the winery and am very lucky to have worked at a couple of wineries during the vintage, at a boutique Chianti Classico producer and with a Barossa Valley garagiste. Hard work, great fun and invaluable learning experiences.

My favourite wine regions are the Languedoc and the Roussillon in SE France – areas brimming with potential, young and exciting producers, and a source of good value, well-made wine. I also love grower Champagne, Mosel Riesling and Burgundy, and I can often be found quaffing real ale, new wave craft beer and single malt Scotch whisky.

Outside of wine I am a keen cyclist and have completed various cycling challenges including riding the length of Ireland and Portugal, and cycling from London to Paris in 24 hours.

Pippa Hayward - Specialist Wine Advisor, Kew & Teddington

One time Sommelier and Restaurateur turned Wine Educator and Travel Guide, I stumbled upon yet another wine based role here at The Good Wine Shop and added Specialist Wine Advisor to the list. I wear many hats but all relate to my favourite beverage. My “Desert Island Case “ would have to include Galician Whites and Bierzo Reds , fine Sherries, Grower Champagnes, Madeira and lots of Grenache, in all its guises. As a member of The Association of Wine Educators, I get to teach and learn……….never happier than when discovering a wonderful new wine, except possibly when drinking it.

Richard Wilson - Education & Training Co-ordinator & Buying Coordinator

Over ten years ago, an opportunity to work with wine, a subject close to my heart, happily put an end to my career in Financial Services. With four years under my belt at TGWS, I now co-ordinate the wine buying, master classes and staff training, but keep my hand in on the shop floor. I love a wine underdog; prefer white to red and am a Riesling fanatic and acid freak. Outside of my dream job, injuries and responsible wine drinking permitting, I attempt the odd marathon or triathlon. Have I cracked that mid-life crisis yet? I think so.
