CHAIRMAN & FOUNDER
Born and raised in Portugal, Raymond studied Chemistry at Leicester University, before going on to study Oenology at Bordeaux. Returning to Portugal, he became assistant winemaker at Taylor’s Port, before moving to the UK in 1990 and setting up Raymond Reynolds Ltd. He is a member of the Port Wine confraria.
ORDERS & LOGISTICS
Although Jackie did once manage a wine bar, a background in secretarial management sees her managing orders and logistics at Raymond Reynolds, ensuring all wine is where it needs to be, on time.
This led him to join Raymond Reynolds Ltd in 2014, after a brief stint in wine retail. Max is now responsible for overseeing the portfolio alongside Raymond. He holds the WSET Level 3 (Distinction) and is an Advanced Ambassador of the Wines of Portugal Academy.
James has an extensive retail and bar background, managing various Independent Merchants across Manchester. Now based in London, James is responsible for working with some of our Retail, Restaurant and Broker customers.
What he lacks in vino-know-how, he makes up for in experience in customer support, client liaison, and events organisation accrued over a frantic career. Glen is most likely who you'll reach if you call the main office. He'll be happy to process any orders or help with any queries you may have.
