Joe Prebble – General Manager
I’ve been with Schneider’s for nearly ten years and in that time I’ve a developed a passion for anything fermented. As well as tasting more wines than I can remember, I’ve also sat a number of the WSETs courses and am now working towards the Diploma. I’m a huge fan of micro-breweries and the diversity they’ve brought to the beer industry. Having developed a taste for old-world wines, I’m particularly interested in those from the Rhone Valley, Priorat, and Ribera del Duero.
Terry Brown –Wine Manager
My first career as a chef for 10 years allows me to bring a unique insight into wine and food pairing. I have been the wine manager at Schneider’s for 12 years and take great pleasure in selecting a wide range of wine from around the world. I enjoy building long term relationships with my customers and friends, whether providing advice on a bottle for dinner or help to create a cellar. My love for Pinot Noir is transatlantic and I enjoy everything Spanish as well as a number of quirky whites!
Richard Bobrow – Spirits Manager
As a Schneider’s veteran, I oversee our spirits purchasing and the store’s daily operations. Now has never been a more exciting time in the spirits world with the increasing number of distilleries opening up across the country making exciting products. That said, I’m always partial to a good Cognac, a dram of Scotch, and of course a good Kentucky Bourbon.
Felix Milner – New Media Manager
Coming up to my second year I’ve enjoyed helping out on a number of projects, not least managing the content and redesign of our new website. After graduating I started my career in wine at Majestic Wine in London and then a short stint in California. While working in London for a year I sat and passed, with distinction, the Wine & Spirits Education Trust’s (WSET) Advanced certificate. I’m now part way through the Diploma course, the pre-requisite to the Master of Wine. While I’m always on the search for something new, I’m a big proponent of fortifieds, particularly Sherries and Madieras.
Stewart Phillips – Assistant Wine Manager & Beer Director
After starting my career with a year at Nashville’s Midtown Wine and Spirits, I trained at the Professional Culinary Institute of California for the Court of Master Sommelier’s Certified Sommelier. Three years on I’m Schneider’s assistant wine manager and beer buyer, a role that has given me the opportunity to try thousands of wines. Among my favorites are California Cabs, Red Burgundy, and German Riesling.
