About Us

Pickers began as a way to pass the time and spread a little joy during the March lockdown. In the depths of furlough and missing the daily opportunity to match wines to guests in a hospitality setting, we began to pamper family and friends with personalised wine cases. And they kept asking for more.

Being trusted to select wines for people is a position of privilege and one that we revel in. We want to help you discover a new favourite bottle and explore exciting regions and styles. We want to show you wines we love but always be led by your preferences. From improving the everyday to finding a celebration bottle, we hope to help you engage with wine in a way that is interesting, personal, joyous and delicious.

Love, Sam and Nick.

Sam

Knows people first and wine second. Opened and ran The Drop, Harts Groups’ natural wine bar in Kings Cross, having moved to hospitality from a literary background. Enjoys telling stories and pushing Austrian whites.

Nick

Has spent the last decade in all areas of hospitality with a firm focus on bars and operations, consulting on everything from drinks menus to logistics. Loves a spreadsheet but driven by guest experience. Also likes spirits.
