Ben Thornton-Smith – Trainee Manager, Richmond
Wine, food, and good service are my passions. After realising the possibility of a career in wine I swerved into hospitality full-time to get a grip on the grape, and now find myself here, dazzled by the range at The Good Wine Shop.
I love down to earth terroir-driven wines whilst trying to taste as much as possible to re-evaluate my opinions. At this very moment an ideal white would be vigorous, lean, autolytic (e.g. Marche Verdicchio & Jura Savagnin) and an ideal red would be perfumed, pure, neutral vessel (e.g. Piedmontese Nebbiolo & Rhone Syrah).
Marcello Antonucci – Assistant Store Manager, 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.
It’s very difficult to choose a favourite wine but I have a weakness for Rhône blends and wines from Southern Italy – particularly the reds from Puglia and the whites from Sicily.
