Meet The Team

Kristian Shephard (Centre), Director  Having come up with the idea of opening his own shop whilst working for Laithwaites, he then spent the next couple of years planning and developing the idea and now here we are! In his free time (what little there is of it!) he loves spending time with his daughter Phoebe or enjoying something interesting from a tiny vineyard somewhere.  

Felix Owsley (Right), Manager  Second in command of the Vine & Grain vessel, Felix began his voyage into the world of craft drinks managing a bottle shop in Berkshire, which is actually where he and Kristian first met. Willing to try anything from barrel aged Geuze’s to imperial stouts you’d need a knife and fork to get through, Felix is enamoured with anything tasty and likes to share these tasty things with the world.
