Our Story

I refuse to believe it was almost 25 years ago that I started out in the wine trade! Growing up, we rarely drank wine at home so my first exposure came when working in our local pub restaurant during my A-levels. My interest grew and during that period, I studied for and sat my WSET basic, intermediate and advanced courses. After living in France for a couple of years, I went on to work for Kim Crawford wines in New Zealand working in their tasting room and cellar door in the beautiful Hawkes Bay.

By this point, I had properly caught the bug and my passion for wine was insatiable. I went on to work for a local independent wine merchant, tasting at every opportunity, whilst asking our suppliers a lot of geeky questions! I gained my WSET Diploma and went on to work for a respected London-based importer, travelling the globe visiting producers and tasting.

In 2008 I worked a Champagne harvest near Epernay and loved every minute, even the aches and pains! My holidays were always planned around vineyard visits and tasting opportunities, I have fond memories of taking our 8 week old first born to some producers in Chablis!

Other highlights include judging for the International Wine Challenge, tasting our way around the Sherry triangle during the Jerez Feria del Caballo, and a wonderful buying trip to the stunning Douro Valley.

In 2016 I attended the legendary Champagne Academy and in 2021 Handpicked Wine Box was born. I am so excited by this next chapter, bringing together my experience, contacts, drive and attention to detail.

I genuinely believe we are offering something better and different to any of our competitors, and we value your support.
