Former lab technician and chemistry grad, Stu, took a rather circuitous route to Pew Corner, but he’s here now! After a stint at Majestic the wacky world of natural wine might be considered daunting, but for Stu it’s an opportunity to get tasting! Currently on a tasting giro d'Italia, Stu is particularly enjoying the vinous fruits of Piemonte and Toscana. Outside of work Stu could fairly be described as the outdoorsy type, while at home he’s a keen cocktail maker and has gained a few willing guinea pigs from the Les Caves pen (seriously, ask for an Old Fashioned or Espresso Martini!)
Pete originally joined Les Caves as a van driver, leaving the warehouse at some godforsaken hour in order to get the wine to our thirsty customer on time. Since then he has taken on the mantle of Warehouse Manager at Pew Corner, and spends most of his time behind the scenes finding ever-ingenious new ways to cram in bottles from our ever-expanding range into every last nook and cranny available. Pete is a master raconteur and never short of an anecdote, whether required or not.
Joining the company not long after Pete, Anthony has been and remains one of our most valuable secret weapons. He is always at the ready to come to the rescue and only he can navigate across London in his red van quite as efficiently as he does. When not out on deliveries, Anthony spends his time assisting his colleagues in the shop at Pew Corner (aka smashing bottles). Anthony also heads up the catering department at shop tastings, and the bacon sarnies he lays on at our annual stock take are the stuff of legend.
