A decade ago, Edward translated his passion for taste and quality from working in the restaurant business to the infinite wonders of the world of wine. Initially, joining the supply chain management team for one of the UK's largest wines and spirits suppliers, he developed within that role to manage the accounts for specialist fine wine merchants in London and throughout the UK.
For the four years prior to founding EJB Wines he took the opportunity to specialise in wine retailing at the UK's largest online wine retailer. Whilst training with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) to gain his degree in Wines and Spirits, he has made it his mission to raise the profile and accessibility to small family owned wineries to wine lovers here in the UK.
His knowledge, expertise, committment and sheer enjoyment of all aspects of wine sourcing and matching is a key feature of the service delivered by EJ Bartholomew Wine Merchants.
