EXPLORE OUR SHOP
Andy Hesketh – Store Manager, Richmond
Despite being from freezing cold Alberta, Canada (certainly not a wine meca), I’ve been surrounded by good wine from a young age. The first bottle that piqued my interest was a taste of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (paired with lamb) when I was a young teen. Before coming to The Good Wine Shop, I worked as a shop manager for an award-winning wine retailer and as a sommelier for a three-Michelin Stared restaurant. I'm pursuing my Advanced Sommelier qualification with the Court of Master Sommeliers.
I’m particularly fond of wines from Champagne, the Northern Rhone and South Africa. When I'm not drinking or reading about wine, you can find me with my wife sitting at a coffee shop, running in Richmond Park, or boarding a flight to explore somewhere new.
Eva Holeckova – Wine Advisor, Richmond
I grew up in the Nitra wine region, which is situated in the south west of Slovakia. My passion and love for wine started at an early age when I worked alongside my father and grandfather on the family vineyard, learning first hand the secrets of traditional wine making.
At the moment I'm working towards my WSET Diploma and to ease the burden of study a glass of wine is always at hand. My favorite wine is Gruner Veltiner from Slovakia and if I can't get my hands on it here in UK, I would reach for one from Austria. I adore wines from Greece and Georgia to name a few, but my list could easily keep going. When I'm on holiday a visit to the local vineyards is a must, you never know what gem is waiting for you just asking to be discovered.
