Bastian Fischer - Store Manager and Group Hospitality Manager, Richmond
Originally from the outskirts of Berlin I have spend the past 17 years working in hospitality gaining experience in some of the most beautiful parts of Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. My interest in wine started during a summer season in Trentino Alto Adige where I worked closely with the hotel Sommelier and got to taste some of the most exceptional wines in the local area, providing me with a real sense of place. After Italy I moved to the UK where over the past decade I got to work with some of the best Sommeliers and Hospitality professionals in the world turning the initial interest of wine into a real passion.I am a wine maverick and love to try new things, challenging my perception of the status quo in the pursuit of flavour and balance. I dont have a favourite wine per se but the wines from the Loire and Rhone Valley tend to be the ones taking up most space in my own cellar. Apart from wine i am somewhat of a parttime cigar aficionado and passionate about all things coffee and rum, though not together.
Olga Golovatenco - Assistant Manager, Richmond
Being in London for over 5 years now, I’ve worked in various roles from waitress to assistant restaurant manager, discovering diverse aspects in hospitality. However nothing captured my attention more than the beverage aspect, to be a bit more specific: wine. Throughout training I was surrounded by people who seem to have caught the same bug, eventually forcing my curiosity to be more active and after this I couldn't stop learning.
The wines which I enjoy the most are made from Chenin Blanc, as a style that would be Saumur definitely as for the red, Pinot Noir from Oregon and some Tuscan wine as well.
Jenny Meutelet – Digital Marketing Manager & Wine Advisor, Richmond
Originally from Burgundy, I first joined the wine industry four years ago during my Master’s Degree in Bordeaux when interning in a Pessac-Léognan estate. I then moved to London three years ago, working in Wine PR & Communications – both for one of the UK’s Top Wine PR agency and in-house for an online wine merchant. I also obtained both my WSET Level 2 & 3 during this time and finally decided to work in a wine shop to develop that knowledge more – both in marketing and in store.What I love about wine is that there’s always something to learn, discover or taste but if I had to choose, my favourite wine regions/countries would be Austria and Alsace and I'm also a huge fan of Jura and South African wines.
Marcello Antonucci – Wine Advisor & Delivery Driver, Richmond
Wine has always been a factor in my life as I grew up in my grand-father’s vineyard who used to make an excellent red wine! While I worked as a sales representative in Italy, I developed a real passion for wine, charcuterie and cheese, and have now been working in the Hospitality industry for over 10 years both in Italy and the UK working different roles before joining TGWS.What I love about wine is that there’s always something to learn, discover or taste but if I had to choose, my favourite wine regions/countries would be Austria and Alsace and I'm also a huge fan of Jura and South African wines.
