Thomas Johnson

Founder & Managing Director

Thomas discovered his passion for wine during his role as Senior Portfolio Manager for a Wine Merchant in the city. During this time, he passed his Levels 1&2 WSET exams and gained valuable knowledge of the markets. In 2018, he launched The Grape Variety in Chipstead, and in 2020 launched the Walton-on-the-hill shop too, despite a global pandemic and national lock down! Needless to say, Thomas loves a challenge…! He has a hunger for opportunity and is always looking for ways to improve the shop’s offerings and customer service benefits, so feel free to drop him a line if you ever think our services could be better.
