The Wine Business Network

March 20 @ 18:00 - 21:00

Introducing the Wine Business Network – a new kind of event for professionals in the wine trade.

Inspired by business events that were held in the late 1990s (called First Tuesday), and being struck by the openness with which wine professionals shared thoughts and ideas during Wine Owners’ 10th anniversary party last year, we decided to sponsor an environment where peers within the wine trade can network and discuss any and all aspects of doing business, within an informal setting, over a few beers.

We are thrilled to announce a very special guest speaker for the first event taking place on March 20th 2024, Elliot Awin from Awin Barratt Siegel Wine Agencies (ABS). Elliot has just become the first person ever with a pacemaker to row across the Atlantic, solo, a feat he accomplished in 44 days.

The World’s Toughest Row is a monumental challenge, covering 3,000 miles from the Canary Islands to Antigua. Elliot will share the story of his journey and the learnings taken from such an achievement. Could they be applicable to all of us in our everyday lives?

To date, Elliot’s charity, Wave Wrangler, has raised £156,000 on behalf of the British Heart Foundation, with the goal of financing defibrillators for under-funded sports centres, and research and innovation. The fundraising is ongoing and donations can be made via Just Giving.

Please join us to listen to Elliot’s story, from why he had a pacemaker fitted at such a young age to the difference Wave Wrangler has already made to many people’s lives battling arrhythmia.

You’ll find us downstairs at Davy’s Wine House on High Holborn in central London from 6pm. It’s a great space and drinks list, made all the better by James Davy very kindly reserving the space on the night exclusively for this private wine trade event.

Don’t miss the first event of its kind, to reserve your attendance RSVP via the link now.
