We have been lucky enough to have crossed paths and made friends with the following people and companies. All of which have either helped, supported or worked with the The Wine Shop & Wine Tasting Co.
Jo Holdaway Illustrator – I actually went to Primary school with Jo! I just love her work, I think its bold, bright, fun and so it was no choice that Jo was the person that I wanted to design my logo!
Clifton Cellars – My first ever job in the wine trade! While I was working full time Alan gave me a Saturday job! Fantastic independent wine merchant based in the heart of Clifton Village.
Oatley Vineyard – A top English vineyard producing two amazing award winning white wines. Iain and Jane allow me to pop along and try my hand at vineyard work. I’ve learnt a lot through having that hands on experience, priceless!
Quartz ABS – The numbers need to add up and Anne is the women for the job. Keeping me on track and showing me without good accounts the business won’t work! She makes me pretty graphs so its easy to understand!
Tudor Communications – Wine is my area, not words, Wenna has worked her magic to make sure my website and publications are saying what they need to (apart from this page as it is from the heart!)
Coco’s Deli – A funky cool cafe in the centre of Weston-s-Mare which is owned and run by my friend Clare. You will often see the Wine Tasting Co’s wine, great venue for tastings in the summer time!
The Food Den – Scrumptious deli run by husband and wife team, Leslie and Paul. Producing superb top quality food! Suppling great wines to match with a special wine of the month!
