MANAGING DIRECTOR

Rupert Monier-Williams

Whilst Rupert does indeed have an appreciation for prog-rock, admitting in the office that he remains a big fan of Pink Floyd, he finds enjoyment in the outdoors, either fly fishing or nurturing his ever-evolving and much-loved vegetable patch.

Rupert’s four-decade journey in wine has seen him through establishing the Henriot champagne brand in the UK, presidency of the Wine Trade Sports Club, client tasting trips across France and Italy, as well as pulling corks on some quite phenomenal and ancient bottles. These varied and distinct experiences are indeed what makes Rupert the ardent wine pundit, however, as with the outdoors, he maintains wine is there simply to be shared and enjoyed.

DIRECTOR

Mark Roberts

Mark spent three years in the London office of John Harvey and Sons, after which he joined Laytons Wine Merchants, followed by a three year stint at Charles Taylor wines.

Mark reputedly has one of the finest tasting palates in the industry and an encyclopaedic knowledge of not only fine wine, but is also curiously passionate about prog-rock bands, all matters sporting and London restaurant openings. A creature of habit, when not in the office you’ll likely find Mark at London’s newest go-to restaurant or even at a rock concert, ideally at Glastonbury.
