Your personal wine merchants

Jeremy Hill - El Capitano

Having, as he puts it, “marinated” somewhere in the wine trade since 1977 [Is that Anno Domini, Jeremy?] Jeremy’s experience of the wine trade in all its facets is truly extensive. Oddbins in its early days, management with Britain’s oldest wholesale merchant Hedges and Butler, and wine bar ownership in London, left Jeremy well-positioned to build an excellent reputation in the retail wine trade, which is exactly what he has been doing for the last decade or so.

His knack of predicting just what his customers will most enjoy drinking is uncanny, and a talent to which his loyal and extensive following bears witness.

Jeremy's Staff Picks include Vondeling Babiana & Los Vascos Grand Reserve

To contact Jeremy, ring him at the shop on 01453 802740 or on his mobile - 07768 865371 - or email

Andy Cole - Managing Director

Andy joined us just before Christmas 2015 after 15 years in event catering with William’s Kitchen @ Calcot and Fosters Events, feeding up to and over 1,000 people with restaurant quality meals; Andy decided to hang up his spoon and fork and trade them in for a new waiters friend!

Andy brought an enormous wealth of experience in hosting and planning events and he has taken Vinotopia into the busy wedding market. With our bespoke wine labels that are created for one-off events and special occasions, using Andy’s attention to detail and personable service to help clients choose their wines, match it to the food they are eating and help them to ensure they don’t run out!

Please pop in and say hello to Andy and if you have an event coming up that he can help you with, let us know.

Andy's Staff Picks include Alain Jaume Vacqueyras & Alcyone Dessert Tannat.

Phil Robinson - Delivery Specialist

Phil joined us in 2018, after a career in the police. The high stakes can only be matched by working with wine merchants.

Louise Jenkins - Retail and Customer Support

Louise joined us in 2020 to help us to support our customers and provide excellent service during an unprecedented time.

Max - The Vinotopia Dog

Max is a dog, so he can't provide any official advice on what wines you should buy... but he does work hard posing for photos! Max enjoys a good walk, regular food and a nice head scratch.
