Another long-time standing member of the red+white family, Beth has ruled the retail roost for over 12 years, making sure our delicious drops are readily accessible to the greater Auckland region for your drinking pleasure.

When the weekend beckons, Beth can be seen brunching at the newest spots around Auckland with hubby Mario, walking Takapuna beach with her girls, or at home preparing a feast fit for a Sunday long lunch, with some carefully chosen vino to compliment the spread.

Apparently she is quite adept at synchronised swimming, and although we’re yet to witness a demonstration in the flesh, we have no need to doubt this is one of the many things in her box of tricks.

The spring chicken of the whanau, Brittany was new to the team in 2018 and has her hands full looking after customers East, South, & Central Auckland, Matakana and Waiheke. She’s no stranger to wine though, having grown up with wine in her blood (her granddad was a winemaker who would eagerly coax her and her siblings under the table for a sneaky sip at family gatherings).

It goes with the territory that she enjoys a glass or two of the good stuff but come Friday, when the clock strikes 5, she’s all about balancing her busy work life spending time outdoors – hiking, paddle boarding, in her kitchen cooking up a storm, or at Boxing Alley – she has a mean right hook!

John has been Blair’s wingman since the inception of Cellar Ltd, the then-based Wellington company that grew from humble beginnings.

Fast forward to the present and there are not many people in the industry that Johnny hasn’t wooed with our quality offerings. His primary customer base is quality Auckland on-premise and one of his great successes has been positioning and protecting our brands in key Auckland and Northland accounts.

While during work hours you may well bump into him enjoying a glass with a customer, outside of the work realm he’s out of sight – gardening (with an enviable vege patch that would impress the greenest of thumbs) entertaining & relaxing, always to a soundtrack of modern electronic music.
