Caspar began his career at Majestic. Along with his wife, Victoria, he started his Devizes business in 2002 and sells to a private client base, both through Bowes Wine and their educational wine sampling club, The Daily Drinker.

Vagabond is a rapidly expanding business with six locations in its London portfolio. Henry has been running the Fulham branch for over two years and puts his tasting skills to the test when working alongside head buyer Colin Thorne.

After running a wine bar and working in wholesale, Charlotte opened her Norbiton shop over 10 years ago. She sells breads, cheeses and other local produce alongside her carefully curated range of wines and regularly holds tutored tastings.
