David has been in the wine trade since the origin of Waterloo Wine Company, Lant Street Wine's previous incarnation, in the early 1980s. With 20 years of experience directing a wine company he and his son Ben took the business on in 2015 and David has has remained steadfast through the transition.
Ben worked at Waterloo Wine from 2006 and acquired plenty of knowledge of their producers and wines. Over the years Ben has covered almost every aspect of a wine merchant's world from vineyard to consumer - buying, selling, transporting, storing and delivering wine to countless customers - and now he turns his hand to management. His personal favourite? This varies depending on the time of day and occasion, but will generally come back to a dry, crisp Loire Valley white. An English fry-up accompanied by Champagne is also not out of the question.
A comparatively late starter, Rudi has been exploring the world of wine for about 5 years, and has taken on the roles of assistant manager, web content development and social media analyst at LSW. When not casually swirling (or swilling) a glass of red Côtes du Rhône his other interests include riding his motorcycle and building computers.
With family connections to wine production in New Zealand and a childhood spent watching the controlled madness of a central London restaurant, Antonia shouldn't be surprised to find herself returning to the world of wine and food. Her personal choice is usually whatever she hasn't had before, not always wisely.
Peter has worked for Waterloo Wine since the original shop opened in 1986, and as such is extremely familiar with our wines and producers. He has spent 40 years in the wine business and so brings a great broad knowledge to our team. He hosts private tastings in the shop and warehouse and is particularly knowledgeable about his personal favourites, the wines of Austria and Germany.
