It’s always good fun when my life before the wine trade collides with my life in the wine trade. An old colleague who used to share the top floor office at the Consortium (in effect Marketing, Customer Insight and E-Commerce down 'our' end of the office) is setting up a new café in Warminster – just down the road from Yapp HQ.
So there was no better excuse to catch up with the Magees and taste some wines – we worked down a list of Yapp staples while discussing their plans for what sounds to be the place to go in Warminster when it opens in late August.
Clearly, it’s all hands to the pump at the Old Fire Station at the moment, both myself and Mei learnt more than we thought possible about coffee machine wiring and barista training – let alone the expertise required to hang heavyweight doors.
Naturally, it was an enjoyable tasting – and we’ll see where we go next with this exciting venture as they are still working on the menus, but they are keen to use local suppliers and offer something that’s a bit special – so do keep an eye out for the opening – we’ll be there for sure!
