Edward Eastwood

Systems Manager & Italy buyer

Edward trained in aeronautical engineering, as evidenced by his paper darts, and dabbled in IT. He joined Uncorked after a bomb scare in Broadgate curtailed his computer maintenance. A chat over a gin and tonic about his background in the wine trade working for his father lead to him joining the company 15 years ago. After a sabbatical organic farming in the West Country and Bulgaria finally put him off proper work he returned to be a fixture in the shop. His roles include attempting to fix more things than he breaks, very patiently telling colleagues to turn it off before turning it on again and becoming the most informed Italian wine nerd we have. He particularly loves the wines of Piedmont or anything from a volcano.
