New Season, New Team Members

Here at LVG HQ we love a bit of maths and we reckon that ‘our team + more people = more fun and better service’. As a result we’ve decided to bring on not one, but TWO helpers for the run-in to winter.

New peeps Amanda and Claire are two hugely experienced ladies who’ll be working across sales, staff training and a host of other areas that help to keep the LVG wine circus on the road.

We’re really looking forward to having them onboard so without further ado – let us introduce you to the new faces of 2015/16:

Amanda Myles

Amanda Mugshot

Amanda has been in the wine trade for over 15 years in both France and the UK – working with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Percy & Fox, Diageo, H&H Bancroft and Majestic. She also holds a whole load of boozing qualifications and has spent several recent winter seasons in the Portes du Soleil.

Starting tomorrow, Amanda will be visiting every corner of the Alps over the coming weeks to ensure that you can get your taste buds around some scrummy LVG wines before the ski lifts start turning… 

Claire Blackler

Claire Blackler

Claire and her husband live on a narrow boat on the Union Canal near Edinburgh but spend as much time as possible at their chalet in the French Alps. When it comes to educating others about wine – she has it nailed. Not only does she run Case Studies Wine School in Edinburgh but she is also inches away from becoming a Master of Wine. That’s about as swanky a wine qualification that you can get. 

With great banter and more professional industry accreditations under her belt than we’ve had cheese fondues, there’s a lot we can all learn from this lass! Claire will be spreading her vinous knowledge in the mountains from late November. 

So that’s it – welcome to the team ladies and here’s to a very successful and fun season – cheers!
