The interview: Christopher Lockett, Director, Lockett Bros, North Berwick

Published:  23 July, 2008

Christopher Lockett developed his passion for wine during a year in New Zealand working as a grape picker. On his return to the UK he worked for Oddbins and the Bottle Stop in Edinburgh before opening his own independent wine merchant, Lockett Bros, in September 2004.

There's a cheese seller who parks his van outside our shop on a Friday night. He's an absolute legend; a young French guy who is passionate about what he does and what he sells. He really draws a crowd so we started holding informal wine tastings when he's out there. We'll open up a bottle and hand it to people waiting in the queue. There's such a nice atmosphere and it's a good laugh.
