Greg Beachen CWTO (Chief Wine Tasting Officer)
The Grape Escape is owned and operated by Greg Beachen. My experience has been gained from many years working in the wine and tourism industry in New Zealand and the UK.
Whilst living in the UK I studied for a degree in Business Management and Tourism at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. It was during this time that I discovered the wonderful world of wine, whilst working part time in an Oddbins wine store. Oddbins were renowned for their fantastic range of wines and knowledgeable staff, so it seemed like a great place to explore the world of wine.
Starting and running this business has been the easiest and one of the most enjoyable things I have done in my life. I credit this to the fact that I found something I was passionate about. Through my passion for my business i believe that I bring great value to my clients/friends and it is my mission to meet and exceed my customers needs and expectations.
