About us...

Stefan Botfield

Dictador Perpetuo Stefan has decades of experience in all aspects of the wine industry. Leaving the London life behind, Stefan opened The Wine Cellar close to his Bedfordshire home in 2015

Favourite wine: Knackered old Riesling

Fun fact: Stefan only owns one pair of shoes

Karen Botfield

Like the Illuminati, Karen operates behind the scenes to make sure that Stefan and Tim don't spend too much money or that we don't run out of Fairy liquid.

Favourite wine: (Fancy) Champagne

Fun fact: Karen always carries a staple gun

Molly Hillier

Molly joined the wine industry in the worst way possible - Stefan started dating her mum. Luckily, she made the most of it, and now manages day-to-day shop operation.

Favourite wine: Beer

Fun fact: Occasionally travels via wheelbarrow

Tim Robertson

Tim is just some wine nerd that needed keeping out of trouble. He assists Stefan in sourcing and purchasing new products, as well as fixing broken equipment.

Favourite wine: Saumur of whatever's going

Fun fact: Tim grew his hair to carry more wine boxes
