Bancroft's newest recruit: meet Ben McVeigh-Whitaker

Ben McVeigh-Whitaker is new to our orders desk - get to know him here, and on the phone when you place your next order... we get to know what makes him tick. Welcome Ben!

What were you doing before you came to Bancroft?

I was a sommelier at 28-50 Wine Workshop & Kitchen…if you want incredible value fine wine in a London restaurant, go there!

How did you discover your love for wine?

Errr…Chilean Reds? Maybe not a traditional wine trade answer, but I remember at the very start being extremely taken with their big and bold flavours, and this led me to explore!  I decided it was definitely love in the tasting room at Mouton Rothschild.
