John has enjoyed 45 years in the wine trade. The last
30 years have been with S H Jones & Co – Wholesale
and Retail Wine Merchants in Banbury, Oxfordshire for
whom he is a Director.
The slightly old fashioned term “merchant” is correct, as
it encompasses both buying and selling and that is what
he does. Sourcing wines both in Europe and further
afield, and then bringing them to market here in the
South Midlands to be sold on to a variety of buyers. This
includes the provision of clients, hotels, restaurants,
universities and the conference industry.
