Tom Barton

Inspired by Keith Floyd’s boozy journey around France in “Floyd Uncorked”, Tom joined Majestic Wine in 1999. In two stints with the company totalling seven years he managed two stores in SE England, achieved the WSET Diploma and ran the customer service, product knowledge and WSET courses. 2007 saw a move to the supply side and sales roles with HwCg, PLB & Berkmann Wine Cellars before 4 years as Key Account Manager with Codorniu Raventos looking after and growing branded business within UK independent retailers, regional wholesalers, on-line specialists, travel retail, Majestic Wine & Waitrose…amongst others. Tom joined Connoisseur Estates in January 2016 to develop business within the South of the UK – there have been plenty of wine highlights so far but Tohu ‘Rore’ Pinot Noir certainly stands out!
