Jonathan Simpkin


With 10 years in retail, 5 of which in management I finally set up Woodhouse Wines in Leafy Woodhouse Eaves Loughborough Leicestershire, after a year learning the trade and gaining WSET qualifications. After 10 years in the Midlands I moved the business to Inverbervie following Karen my wife who was relocated to Aberdeen. I have 7 children and 2 Grandchildren. I enjoy Hill walking skiing and swimming and with the help of my physio – running, particularly the Balmoral 10k. we enjoy travelling especially to wine producing regions, a particular favourite is New Zealand.

“I have always enjoyed a glass of wine but have always been frustrated about not know more about wine making. Jonathan explains the various process of wine making beautifully, with insight, humour and candour, leaving wine lovers inspired and informed. Jonathans’ wines were unique and his personal interest and understanding of the nuances and origin of each of them was inspiring and deliciously profitable!”

"I first met Jonathan at a team building event at Maersk Oil. What a great idea that was! His ”Introduction to Wine” was passionate, amusing and compelling, opening the door for many to a new adventure in discovering and enjoying wine. His wine evenings are a fun way of learning more, and finding out what you like and don’t like within his vast range of wines."
