Although Jamie has been involved in the hospitality industry since 1996, it was a honeymoon spent in South Australia’s vineyards in 2002 that would change his career path and ignite a passion that only grows with every glass of liquid gold to pass his lips.
Quickly resigning from the ‘pub job’ he was fortunate enough to work for various Fine Wine retailers in Brisbane, learning and absorbing from some of the best in the business. An opportunity to work in wholesale presented itself in 2008 with the highly regarded distributor Red+White, where his friendly demeanour, can-do attitude, professional ethical dealings and global wine knowledge were valued by many of his clients.
Jamie joins the Wineaway team to spearhead the Trade sales channel, bringing on board his wealth of knowledge of the wine business. Currently enjoying wines of Piedmont and a believer of the natural wine movement, but honestly admits he will happily enjoy any well-made world class wine. Life is too short to drink bad wine!
