James (‘Cheech’) Colacicchi started his career in wine well over a decade ago in the glory days of Oddbins. By way of Lea and Sandeman, Bibendum and then finally Cru World Wine, James has been around the vinous block. Somewhere along the way he picked up an obsession with Sangiovese, all things Burgundy and the wines of the Rhone and he is now completely addicted to buying wine, of which he has masses. Increasingly James dreams of Riesling. Outside of the office he can be found in the rivers of The Highlands and Northern England looking for Salmon, and shooting pheasants during the season. Game cookery is a huge part of his life.
