Wine Director Shaun Healy has been in the wine trade for over 30 years. With an early passion for wine, Shaun spent many years working for Cash and Carry specialists Nurdin & Peacock. In 1987 Shaun joined Phillips Newman and developed a role supplying a range of wines, beers and spirits to a number of “On–Trade” accounts throughout the UK. His role over that period also took in the position of sourcing wines from all over the world, working closely with wine makers and brand owners. Holder of the WSET Diploma - Shaun has been purchasing wines for LWC Limited during the last 8 years and in this time he has been able to visit a number of important wine regions, looking to introduce new wines that are typical of their area and represent quality and great value, so he can add them to our best ever range! Shaun states “Meeting the vineyard owners, wine makers and négociants we are now able to present you with an excellent choice and are assured that the quality from the range of wines introduced to your business will enhance your trade as we continue to see the wine category enjoy substantial growth in the UK’s On–Trade”.
The head of wine development for the South West of England, James joined LWC in 2008. He started his career at the University of London by combining studying with running the university bar. Having decided to focus on the drinks industry he spent nearly 10 years in various area managership roles for regional pub and bar operators in the South West. When an opportunity arose to join long established regional wine merchants Vinnicombes, as sales manager, James jumped at it. Seven years with this fast expanding company gave James an intensive, on-the-job training in the wine trade.
