4th generation of the Amps family to run the business and about to hit 40 years as a wine merchant in 2022. I enjoy all quality wines from around the world. Former Chairman of the Champagne Academy and Oundle Business Association. Passionate about sport, country pursuits and harvesting my own food.
I moved to Oundle in 2000 and started working at Amps two years later.I’ve been very fortunate to work in many aspects of the company, not only gaining valuable experience in wine, but also having the opportunity to share my interest in spirits.
I’m a wine enthusiast at heart and feel very fortunate to work in wine. Next year will be my 10th year working at Amps, where my role is to look after our restaurant customers with wine lists, staff training, events etc. I also run our WSET wine qualification courses along with Ashley. I love wines of quality from all over the world with a particular eye for quirky and interesting lesser known wines, alongside the old world classics, particularly Champagne (of course!) I’m a keen runner, love countryside walks and as a former county cricketer I still love to watch the game, as well as Rugby Union and football as a long term Aston Villa supporter (mostly sufferer)
I have been with Amps for 5 years. I enjoy trying new wines and meeting customers either in the shop or when out delivering. In 50 years of working I have never enjoyed a job so much and every day I go in to work it is my mission to give 100%, entertain everyone and keep a smile on my face.
I started at Amps in 2018 and have passed my WSET levels 1&2. I enjoy tasting wines from around the world especially white Rioja and would never say no to something sweet. Out of work I enjoy watching various sports and am a keen darts player.
