After completing a business degree at Warwick, having fallen in love with wine, Peter Mitchell MW turned down an opportunity to become an accountant and instead joined Oddbins.  In 1997, following a 6 month spell in Burgundy learning a bit about how wine is made, he spent 4 years doing a variety of sales roles at Corney & Barrow, Matthew Clark and Michael Morgan.

In 2001, Peter joined Jeroboams Group, working in on-trade sales where he ended up as sales director.  After completing his Master of Wine in 2007, he began helping with the buying at Jeroboams.  He moved into a Wine Director role full time in 2015.

Peter is a paper chair for the MW practical exam.  In his spare time he enjoys renovating old houses, long dog walks with his family and learning anything new.
