To find out a bit more about Newcomer Wines, we chatted with Peter, the studentrepreneur who set up the shop while still studying at City University.
TW: So how did you come up with the idea for Newcomer Wines? PH: We wanted to help people focus on the fun and simple nature of wine enjoyment. Newcomer Wines was created as a revolutionary wine shop concept that features emerging Austrian wine makers and their stories, and introduces their unique wines to a fresh and urban audience. TW: Where did you find your wine producers from? PH: We visited an Austrian wine fair in London and met many great small producers who would be eager to sell their wines in the UK but couldn’t meet the bulk prices or high volumes that normal distributors would require from them. TW: How do you use TransferWise for your business? PH: As a start-up, cash is tight and every penny counts. Since our suppliers are based in Austria, TransferWise is a great way to pay our winemakers without the hassle of high bank charges and saves us a lot of money.
