Susie De Paolis
Recommended by Lord Rose, former boss of Marks & Spencer, Susie de Paolis advises clients on portfolio and cellar management.
The key to offering the best advice is having a ‘close rapport’ with the client, to understand their tastes, budget and consumption. It’s also a matter of understanding the industry inside out. ‘Everyone has a different agenda,’ she says. ‘Some just want to drink it, others are buying for investment and everyone has different tastes.’
Clients are united by substantial portfolios, with De Paolis advising on current drinking and future investment purchases. She has recently been joined by daughter Francesca, who holds over 10 years of experience in the trade.
