Meet The Team

Philip Amps 

Philip has been in the wine industry for as long as any of us can remember and runs the ship! Philip won't be afraid to share his opinion on a bottle of wine with you and knows exactly what he likes (although he has a real love affair with New Zealand wines!)



Lesley Freer

Lesley has worked for Amps Fine Wines for over 30 years and manages the financial side of things. Definitely a champion of the New World, Lesley loves big personality fruit filled reds, but is also partial to the odd glass of Champagne...


Alan Byham

A team member since 2002, Alan is our shop manager and resident whisky guru! A lover of anything unusual and interesting, Alan has a very eclectic taste.



Danielle Freer

Danielle has been at Amps Fine Wines for 12 years now (having joined the team aged 15) and organises our events and looks after all of our marketing. Danielle's first love is oaked Chardonnay, but she also has a real soft spot for the wines of California following a trip there!



Nigel Underhill

Nigel is king of logistics and has been part of the Amps success story for 11 years. If ever there was somebody with a sweet tooth, then it's Nigel! He struggles to resist dessert wines and aromatic whites from Alsace and Germany, and he also wouldn't say no to a cheeky glass of port!



Steve Flory

Steve joined our trade team in 2012, but has been madly passionate about wines since well, sliced bread. Mature Bordeaux and good Italian reds are what really tickles Steve's taste buds!


Paul Nichol

If you spot the Amps van in the local area, it's most likely to be Paul behind the wheel! Having developed a keen interest in wine over the last few decades, Paul enjoys matching good wine with good food.



Dan Story

Dan jumped aboard our trade team ship in 2015, working alongside Steve. Dan is currently studying his WSET Diploma in Wines & Spirits meaning he tastes a multitude of different wines, but generally you'll catch him drinking Italian wines.


Marie-Claire Abranches

If you place an order with us over the phone, you're likely to be talking to Marie-Claire (or MC as she likes to be known!) MC has always enjoyed New World wines, particularly Shiraz, but since joining Amps early this year, she has been exploring more French, Spanish and Italian wines.


Ashley Clarke

Ashley is the newest member of the team, having joined the team in 2016. Ashley will greet you with a smile in the shop and be really keen to help you find a wine you'll enjoy. If made to pick a favourite style of wine then he would probably choose Barolo.
