Former banker Neil Walker is on an exciting mission to change people’s perception of English wine
The company has already had an incredibly successful pop-up bar in Shorditch – the first in London to focus solely on English and Welsh wines – and Neil’s ‘Wine Revolution’ as he likes to call it, has continued with a series of immersive tastings throughout lockdown.
“Too many of us have been left with no choice but to judge the wine by the label. We intend to change that. We will make wine approachable, fun and most of all understandable. In fact we will be everything the wine industry isn’t.”
We talk about making his own wine, how he and his team are trying to change the perception of English wine and his plans to grow The English Vine with some quirky ideas and experiments.
