About The Wine Twit
We love wine. And we’re guessing, as you’re here, that you do too. Yet despite a love for it, many of us end up sticking to what we’ve drunk before and don’t experiment. Which means we’re missing out on some wonderful wines from all over the world.
It was this that prompted me to put my money where my mouth was and start The Wine Twit in 2016. I wanted to change the industry – one shop at a time – creating a place where people could come, relax and have a chat about all things alcohol related.
Our aim is to help people learn what they love and put truly great wines, spirits and beers in the hands of everyone - not only the connoisseurs amongst us.
A BBQ isn't a BBQ without an ice cold beer. A party isn't a party without a few G&Ts... you get the idea. But we believe this world is shrouded in secrecy with only the lucky few able to get their hands on the best. Our approach is simple - great drinks, without the attitude.
Whether you need a bottle of red to take to a friend's house but you want something unique, or you're a wine expert who fancies spending the afternoon tasting with us and want to add to your collection, we're for you!
Who's doing it?
Hello... I'm Jez, known to most of you as The Wine Twit. I have over 20 years’ experience in retail, a decade of which I’ve spent in the wine trade, working for a large retailer and independent wine merchant before plucking up the courage to follow my dream and open my own place.
I started blogging about wine more than ten years ago, quickly realising that there was a gap in the market for some straight talking, no nonsense advice on what to look for in wine. This belief is now core to our business and is linked to everything we do – from evening tastings to private events. So whether you're hosting a party or just fancy a good gin after a long day at the office, I'll create that little oasis for you - come say hi!
