James Handford MW
James founded Handford Wines in 1989 with the aim of bringing the highest quality Fine Wines from around the world to the good people of Holland Park. When the opportunity arose to take over the old site of La Vigneronne in South Kensington it was an easy decision. Became the youngest Master of Wine in 1994
Favourite tipple: A real soft spot for classic Languedoc Reds but still nothing hits the mark like a good bottle of Red Burgundy from the Cotes de Nuits
Greg Sherwood MW
Joining us in 2000 as the Marketing Manager for Fine Wines, Greg, now our Senior Buyer, is the man travelling the four corners to find you the most finely crafted and sought after wines in the world. Completed the prestigious Master of Wine exams in 2007. Interested in En Primeur or difficult to find Fine Wines? Make sure to get in touch!
Favourite tipple: Desert island reds – The 3 M’s … Margaux, Montebello & Masseto
Gav first arrived to manage the Holland Park shop which we sadly shut in 2007. Now, the glue that holds the whole operation together, you’ll find him running everything from our Marketing through to our Stock Ordering, Maintenance, and general motivation!!
Favourite tipple: A good Manchester lad it would have to be a Boddingtons. Wine-wise: Chateau Palmer, if you’re buying, or Riesling – the Achilles heal!!
Mick joined the team in May 2011 as Retail Manager and looks after the day to day running of the shop. Started as a Master of Wine student in 2012. Get in touch regarding parties, weddings, cellar management or just the right bottle for a rainy day
Favourite tipple: If a Sassicaia '85 isn't to hand he'll settle for a Guinness
Vicky joined the team in May 2011 to assist with day to day running of the store and to put together the Tasting programme in our cellar. Completed her WSET Diploma in 2010. Please get in touch if you would like help planning an event, or to hire our cellars and for any other Vinous related matters.
Favourite tipple: 2002 Domaine Leflaive Bienvenue Batard Montrachet please! Or anything from Northern Italy would do!!
Harley is our trusted van driver! He works in the afternoon from Tuesday to Friday and keeps all of our logistics ticking over
Favourite tipple: If he has a spare second he can show you the recipe for the perfect Caipirinha but in the world of wine he is all about Spain – Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, Bierzo - the list goes on… and of course the mindblowing Miolo Brazilian sparkler!
