About Oli and Iain
Oli has been working in wine shops for over 15 years, and still thinks it's the best job in the world! In his spare time he loves getting away with his wife Jo (who does a proper job as a Teacher) often combining a holiday with a trip to a wine region.
When Iain’s not in the shop, he's either busy being a Dad, or in a field somewhere with the dog. But chances are he’ll be in the shop because he actually likes working there!
When either of them aren't standing behind the counter there is a good chance they are working on finding more drinks to get excited about.
