In September 1999 Decorum Vintners came about from a shared passion for independence, fine Burgundy, Bordeaux and quirky Italian reds. Over the past eighteen years the company has managed to grow successfully and throughout we have done our best to stay true to our roots with a dedication to wines from small, grower-driven estates.
Having been turned down for a job at Berry Bros & Rudd, Rupert started out at Fortnum & Mason before going on to establish the Henriot champagne brand in the UK. This was followed by a role as UK Brand Manager for the South African wines of the Simonsig Estate and three years at Charles Taylor Wines.
He can hit a ball around a golf course without too much embarassment, which is more than can be said for his ability to dance in time to music.

Mark spent three years in the London office of John Harvey and Sons, after which he joined Laytons Wine Merchants, followed by a three year stint at Charles Taylor wines.
He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of not only fine wine, but is also curiously passionate about prog-rock bands, all matters sporting and London restaurant openings. A creature of habit, when not in the office you'll likely find Mark at London's newest go-to restaurant, The Turf Club, Lords or Glastonbury.

Head of Trading
Ed joined us in May 2015; his vinous direction firmly determined a decade ago with a glass of La Mission Haut-Brion 1988.
Ed's wine trade career began in 2005 at Huntsworth Wines, followed by a solid five years at Justerini & Brooks, honing his tasting skills and a passion for fine French, Spanish and Italian wines. Here at Decorum Vintners, he is able to focus on exactly that.

Logistics & Office Manager
Becca was lured away from the delights of Herefordshire, joining our team in January 2014 to run the Office and all Logistics.
A sheep-farmer's daughter, Becca's level-headed approach to the complexities of dealing with Bonded warehouses and SAGE invoicing is much appreciated.
