Some 35 years ago Julie set out to become a wine connoisseur - it was unusual for a woman to enter this profession as it had been dominated by men for such a long time. She joined Sichel & Sons as a secretary, they were unwilling to train her so she went to work for Taylor & Lake Ltd - a young company who were very happy to teach her. She had a keen nose for fine wine and worked with them for over 8 years. She always wanted to set up her own wine business and after much deliberation and three children Julie finally plucked up the courage and set up her company, The Grapevine. She is constantly researching and sourcing unusual and delicious wines to please her clients. Julie also holds wine tastings for corporate, private and charitable funtions as well as regular tastings for her client list.
You will not find her wines in the supermarket - she selects the finest wines from around the world to make drinking them a unique and special experience.
It's good to be different!
