Our Wine Manager, Tanguy Martin, grew up in Lyon, in close proximity to the vineyards of Beaujolais and the Rhône Valley. As child he spent many hours cycling and driving throughout the most iconic wine regions in France. Later, he obtained a diploma of wine making and wine growing after 5 years of study between Beaune and Montpellier.
In 2011, Tanguy joined the English countryside and stayed working alongside Gerard Basset MS MW and Laura Rhys MS for 4 years. During this time Tanguy took part in the UK sommelier competition and was named UK Sommelier of the year 2015. After his win, he took up a new challenge as Head Sommelier at the Michelin star restaurant La Trompette in Chiswick for two years.
Passionate about wine and food, Tanguy’s aim is to bring back the wine at the centre of the table within New Street Wine, New Street Grill and Fish Market . Enthusiastic, attentive and generous, Tanguy shares his passion with his wine team for the delight of our guests!
