    How The Good Wine Shop more than lives up to its name

    There is something delightfully English about calling your retail business The Good Wine Shop. It expresses a certain level of confidence that you know what you are doing, without being over the top and brash about it. But it also encapsulates the friendly, easy going, but also highly professional nature and personality of its founder, Mark Wrigglesworth. Over the last 15 years he has quietly built his business up into a small chain of four much loved, neighbourhood wine merchants in leafy areas of south London all built around the premise of selling “good wine, from real people with great stories”. Richard Siddle paid him a visit at his store in Richmond Hill to find out just how good his wine shops really are.
