Ask anyone to name a dedicated wine store in the UK, and the chances are, they’ll mention Majestic. For many, it’s the place to stock up for a summer party, a wedding, or Christmas. But for others, it’s the place where a love affair with wine really began – and the well-known shop has earned a special place in some wine lovers hearts as a result.

This week, host David Kermode is joined by John Colley, the company’s CEO. They discuss the highs and lows of pandemic trading, the not-so-successful pairing with Naked Wines, new wine ranges and why Majestic staff members are what makes the company so special.

Plus, there will be the usual recommendations of IWSC medal winners for good drinking inspiration for listeners.
