“It’s great to see a friendly face and to be working with Asda’s MW Philippa Carr once again. It is such an exciting time for the entire team who are passionate about wine and delivering the best possible quality to our consumers. I’m honoured to be a part of it.”?Asda recently announced plans to source most of its wines directly from producers and to bottle more wines in the UK.
