About Honest Grapes

Honest Grapes

Everything there is to know about us

 

Well, there we were: a mix of wine enthusiasts, wine professionals, and friends bemoaning how difficult it is to find a website which offers a wide selection of great value, quality wines, at reasonable prices. And when we say reasonable prices, we all meant something fair and equitable – not the usual inflated mark ups, false discounts and BOGOFs that are so prevalent in retail these days.

We also wanted a website that had a community feel with fun social tasting events; a back-to-basics, no nonsense, exciting approach to such a glorious product.

The discussion continued through supporting independent growers, small wineries, producers who consider the wine’s character and value more than volume and branding, not to mention the hardworking agents and small importers who work tirelessly to bring such wines to a wider audience. It moved on to different wine varieties and styles, from the mid-week thirst-quenchers to the once-a-year treats.

We toured France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, picked up a few friends in Germany, Austria and Greece before heading to the New World to find wines from South Africa, the Americas and Antipodes. Returning home, we picked up some of the best homegrown wines from the UK.

Passions flared as favourites were promoted and tales were told. Then some bright spark said “Put your money where your mouth is”.

So, we did. And the result is, Honest Grapes - the quality wine marketplace. We’re pretty proud to be a part of it; we rather hope you will be too.

What makes the Honest Bunch

 

Tom

Tom Harrow

Tom is our WineChap. With fifteen years in the business, writing, buying, selling and hosting great events, he is a jack of all (wine) trades and trying to master a few of them. Tom has tried a large spectrum of excellent wines from all over the world and is delighted to have lined up so many of them here for you to enjoy.

Favourite food and wine combo

His legendary 6-meat, truffled lasagne with an old Barolo.

 

Ian Blackman

Ian Blackman

Our CEO, having spent most of his career in the sports and fashion industry running global brands has allowed Ian to dine and quaff wine at restaurants all over the world. He developed a passion for wine initially as a consumer but more latterly as a collector, obtaining  his WSET qualification and broadening his tasting knowledge. Travelling extensively Ian has visited numerous wineries on all continents and nothing pleases him more than uncovering a gem that his colleagues haven’t tasted. As a qualified designer Ian is passionate about creating an amazing experience for all our customers.

Favourite food and wine combo

Roast prime rib of British beef with either a Côte Rôtie or Cornas from Northern Rhône, Que Syrah Syrah!

 

Nathan

Nathan Hill

Our Chairman's a prolific angel investor who has advised, started and invested in many a company. He’s passionate about wine, WSET qualified and runs wine tastings for business, friends and charity as well as travelling the world in search of the perfect wine. He’s far happier with a well priced decent quality wine than anything too fancy. As a scientist, he brings structure and rigour to our company processes. Yessir!

Favourite food and wine combo

Roast leg of lamb and a lovely Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Oregon or New Zealand sets Nathan aquiver! For easy drinking, a pleasantly saline Picpoul de Pinet with some canapes will do, thanks.

 

Malcolm Hunt

Malcolm Hunt

Malcolm is our CFO. New to the wine trade but with rather more years experience in accounting and finance than he would like to admit, he has the responsibility of keeping the company and the team up to date and aware of the less interesting financial side of life. Outside of finance he is our resident Divemaster, and also a keen rugby fan constantly dragging people along to matches.

Favourite food and wine combo

At the risk of sounding like Rumpole of the Bailey, a big roast dinner with all the trimmings accompanied by a nice but good value claret.

 

Claire

Claire McKinney

Claire’s your typical fine wine merchant: born in one land, raised in another, several languages under her belt, and lends an air of refinement to any office. If only! Her youthful energy belies an encyclopaedic knowledge which is an invaluable resource made available to our Grand Crew clients. “Clara” helps source high-end wines from European estates, as well as commend the new and noteworthy from her native US.

Favourite food and wine combo

After living in France for a few years, her favourite dish is now Chicken and mushrooms in a creamy St. Marcellin cheese sauce paired with a Saumur Breze Chenin Blanc. Yum!

 

Christian

Christian McLarnon

Christian is our ‘go to’ chap for all of our Premier Crew members. Both Membership manager and Personal wine advisor means answering questions on all aspects of the humble grape, providing recommendations and making sure our members don’t miss out on our many events. He likes to get to know everyone’s tastes and loves the challenge of not only getting his wine choices spot on but providing some inspiration when needed. Christian is always around for a friendly chat so get in touch – and that goes for our Friends too!

Favourite food and wine combo

His mother’s secret recipe fish pie accompanied by a glass of good white Burgundy or a butterflied leg of Salt Marsh lamb cooked slowly on the BBQ with a fine Rioja Reserva – delicious!

 

Marie

Marie Wilton

Marie is our events supremo and we keep her busy with roughly two events each week! From corporate events, Honest Grapes tastings, and educational wine chats, she has it covered. In between creating a fun schedule of events, Marie is a keen relationship builder and is always on the look out for new and exciting opportunities to shape the Honest Grapes brand and craft reciprocal partnerships.

Favourite food and wine combo

It’s got to be a hearty Amarone with a big, fat juicy steak and Béarnaise sauce – mixing French and Italian!

 

Bree

Bree Errington

Bree came to us by way of getting stuff sorted out for a chain of coffee shops. Biologist by training, charming pragmatist by nature, she’s the level-headed dynamo behind the imports of crowd funded wines, stock management and deliveries. It’s very rare you’ll see her outside of her natural environment of buying wines for the company, but we’re always pleased when she is.

Favourite food and wine combo

Addicted to ramen in rich broth, with a rounded white wine to cleanse the pallet for the next mouthful.

 

Irina

Irina Negoita

Irina is our Marketing Manager. Having worked in a variety of industries before, ranging from beauty to tech and coffee, she discovered a new passion for great wine when she joined Honest Grapes. She is the master of all our digital platforms, so now you know who’s behind those Instagram posts and the replies to your Facebook comments.

Favourite food and wine combo

Truffle tagliatelle with a smooth Sangiovese.

 

Angus

Angus Raffles

Angus is studying at Nottingham Trent University, but we get to borrow him for a year. His parents run restaurants, and wine is something that he’s grown up appreciating – whilst learning even more on that front he assists with digital marketing, events organising and is generally making our lives less stressful.

Favourite food and wine combo

His dad’s Daube beef cheek Bourguignon, Chantenay carrots and creamy mash, with a large glass (or a bottle) of Côtes du Rhône or Amarone

 

Theresa

Theresa Harrow

Our photographer who takes the snaps of bottles so you can see what you’re buying, along with making sure the site looks lovely and sumptuous. You’ll see her at our events snapping away: So remember. Smile! You’re on camera.

Favourite food and wine combo

Theresa is Swedish, so usually it’s some weird drink that’s been concocted in the family’s backyard. When it comes to wine, she gets all civilised and loves nothing better than a crisp Sancerre with shellfish galore.
