Jeremy is the Retail Manager for the City Wine Shop, part of the collection of much loved Melbourne food & wine establishments that include The European, Melbourne Supper Club and Siglo Bar. His career in wine began with McLaren Vale cellar door work whilst at university in his native Adelaide. It was his time at Universal Wine Bar in 2001, working amongst passionate professionals that gave him deeper insight into the world of wine, which captivated him, leading to extended time working in fine wine retail with East End Cellars.Moving to Melbourne in 2004, he undertook his first stint with the European Group, assisting in the set up and opening of the City Wine Shop, as well as overseeing the cellars and writing of the wine lists for the venues. After working vintages in both Australia and France in 2008, he returned to Sydney, joining the opening team of Rockpool Bar & Grill. As a senior sommelier there, he was privileged to work with one of Australia’s most prized wine cellars, gaining exposure to some of the great & rare wines of the world. After a brief sojourn home to Adelaide in 2012 working at Press Food + Wine, Jeremy returned to Melbourne where he now looks after the Retail operations of the City Wine Shop, as well as co-ordinating the WSET Level 2 & 3 courses. Since returning he has gained valuable experience judging at various regional wine shows and was a scholar of the Len Evans Tutorial in 2017.
