Meet the Team:
Neil Clarke, Manager
Neil originally studied Hotel Management and spent many years as a Restaurateur, even once waiting on Prince Charles, before he joined Tanners in 1998.
Neil thoroughly enjoys working in the wine trade as it's combined some of his greatest passions: meeting all sorts of people, trialling a diverse range of great food matches and enjoying fine wine.Neil's idea of a really special treat is lobster served up with a delicious premier cru Puligny Montrachet.
Although he's enjoyed the experience of travelling extensively through the wine regions of France, Spain, Germany and Italy, a lifelong ambition is to one day actually work with wine in France or Italy.
Ellie Munroe, Wine Adviser
For those of you who are long-standing Tanners customers, you may remember Ellie from the first time she worked in our Hereford branch in 2006. A few years and a couple of gorgeous children later, she’s recently returned to Hereford to pursue her love of wine.
Ellie’s been given a real taste for wine travel having visited the Ramos Winey in Portugal’s Alentejo region. She would like to expand on this experience and top of her travel wish list would be the Rhône Valley and Champagne; the latter explains her dessert island drink of choice: Pol Roger!
If you pop into Hereford and find yourself chatting with Ellie, she’ll be especially keen to talk to you about Chase Spirits and Portuguese wines… and if you're after Champagne for a party - Ellie's definitely the one to ask!
Tony Rumsey, Wine Adviser
Tony joined Tanners in 2010 after several years spent managing a pub. Within a couple of weeks of joining, he attended a rather spectacular Burgundy Tasting in Shrewsbury which started his love affair with all things Burgundian and saw him stocking up his wine rack with 2005 premier cru Meursault.
He's still a grounded chap though: his favourite 'midweek' wine is the great value Amanti Primitivo and as his cocktail of choice would be a Black Russian - made with Guinness, not coke, of course.
A little known fact about Tony is that he has a character from an award-winning children's book named after him!
