Douglas Wood OWNER, PRIVATE SALES & BROKERING
Part man, part bicycle. His thirst for knowledge, his thirst for excellence and, let’s be honest, his thirst started it all. Our leader took a skilled palate and love of wine in one hand and a successful chemical engineering career in the other and….. well; is this a chemical engineering website? No it is not. Well done Doug, good choice.
Stevie Connacher OPERATIONS MANAGER
Napoleon once said that an army marches on its stomach. Which was weird given the feet and boots situation and all. No such idiocy from our Stevie. Once they have put the cork in the bottle it’s all over to him. Using his sizeable experience he ships, he strategises , he plots, he plans, he tastes, he selects, he trains, he does too many things all at the same time, he runs marathons, he flies (…..one day, Stevie, one day…..)!
Shane Dunning PRIVATE CLIENT WINE & WHISKY SALES
Wine drinker, raconteur, international man of mystery, fast jet test pilot, six times world cliff diving champion. These are all words that Shane has used. And may do so again, it’s up to him really. From the fine wine trade in London & beyond, via the path of educator and retailer to hotels, restaurants and institutions Shane brings it all to the table.
Kim Johnston RETAIL & BESPOKE SALES BofA
The conscience of WoodWinters. She keeps us rooted and in the here and now, makes certain we are on-message and doin it for, like, real. Let’s be honest – she had us at hello…Kim has a huge passion for food and drink and has run wine shops, restaurants, food emporia and is life-dictator-elect of a Tom & Barbara Goode Appreciation Society. One of these is not totally true. Shame.
Michael Millar BRIDGE OF ALLAN SHOP MANAGER
The first of our dastardly duo of Irish-themed retail managers and still the original and best (his words). Always at hand with a quip to relieve the daily pressures of life whilst ensuring that our customers are united with just the bottle needed to make it all better. Treads that fine line between genius and madness more often than not - but that's what years in the wine trade can do to you. Oh, and we all look up to him - just pop into the shop and you'll soon understand.
Rob Gilmour EDINBURGH SHOP MANAGER
If the old saying 'speak softly and carry a big stick' is true then our Rob must have a shillelagh stashed away somewhere. His gentle guiding hand and broad knowledge helps to ensure that the good citizens of the Capital drink themselves happy. He's our man with his ear to the ground (and glass in hand) for craft beers and artisan gins too and for that we are all truly grateful.
