Meet the founders



Gren Turner

A very well-travelled businessman who has not only owned and managed extraordinarily successful freight, logistics and transport enterprises, but has also had access to social, cultural and ethnic experiences that many have not had the opportunity to enjoy.



Tomáš Přecechtěl

A very experienced logistics and transport expert based in the Czech Republic, who has worked in the International market for many years on import-export systems, handling products from all sectors of commerce and industry.

Having enjoyed a personal friendship, Gren and Tomáš decided – over a glass of wine, of course! – to create a company that would facilitate UK distribution at an affordable price.

Neither Gren nor Tomáš profess to be aficionados or connoisseurs, and yet – by default, almost by accident – they have gathered a vast wealth of familiarity with some of the finer comestibles, delicacies, wines, spirits and liqueurs available in Europe and the commonwealth. This has occurred as a sideline to their occupations, and has not been an occupation in itself.

Having enjoyed a personal friendship, Gren and Tomáš decided – over a glass of wine, of course! – to create a company that would facilitate UK distribution at an affordable price.

And so, without ever taking themselves too seriously, motivated by nothing but a desire to share some of these extraordinary vintages and small-batch wines with others, Gren and Tomáš extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you, and hope you too will enjoy being an occasional connoisseur…
