Sebastian Riley-Smith

Description

Smith & Taylor was the very first UK company to specialise in wine storage and management, with an eye for detail and the utmost care. Its technical mastery is unparalleled: the Chelsea Bridge cellars are fitted with ultra- modern air conditioning turbines and hi-tech humidifiers to create the optimum conditions for stock. ‘Clients want to centralise their wine holdings in one store, on one inventory, with one custodian and one line of accountability,’ says co-founder Sebastian Riley- Smith. Clients can access stock and have it delivered to any location, and the firm can act as an intermediary between clients and the source of purchase. It also builds bespoke wine rooms.
