 A bit about Tom Laithwaite

Laithwaite’s Wine Director and Tony and Barbara Laithwaites youngest son Tom, is at the forefront of the business.  He is currently lending his voice to a weekly slot on Classic FM with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and a regular host of customer tastings across the country.
Tom hasn’t always worked at Laithwaite’s Wine.  Having grown up with all his family in the business, after finishing his education he decided to create his own path.  Tom stayed close to the world of wine and beer within the hospitality industry managing pubs and running bars.  He was eventually persuaded to work in the family business and went off to Australia and worked at the Sydney office for 3 years.  There he absorbed himself in to the Australian part of the business, copy writing, marketing and wine production.
Once back in the UK, to further cement his knowledge of the company Tom joined the events team – hosting, talking and pouring wine for the customer events.  Now, as a Director, he continues with hosting customer events, supports the wine production side of the business and lends himself to be the voice and face of Laithwaite’s Wine.
