Senior Management Team
Hannah Sifleet – General Manager
Hannah joined us in December and has found love in the wine trade. After working in cocktail bars in Oxford for many years she has moved here to pursue a career in wine and food. Hannah has taken to dry Germanic Riesling especially from Baden. If you need a wine based cocktail though she is your girl.
Laura Perez de Albeniz Aguirreche – Duty Manager
Laura joined us all the way from sunny Spain. She is partial to a robust Chilean Carmenere or one of our distinctively unique craft beers. She is a champ in the kitchen, check out her addition to our brand new brunch and lunch menu – the brie toast with blue cheese crumb and chili oil – delicious!
Josh Webber – Assistant General Manager
Josh joined us in March, after previously running a successful hotel in Somerset. Moving to Oxford, he has pursued his passion for wine by completing his WSET level 2 in September and always trying new wines to develop his palate. Favourites of his include a good Oregon Pinot Noir and he loves a glass of English sparkling wine, especially Furleigh Estate. He’s also partial to a Cornish Pilsner from time to time!
As well as our full time and regular part time staff we are lucky to attract a wide range of interesting and well informed part time staff from all around the world. Whilst some stay for long periods, others move on – such is the nature of the business. The staff however are carefully chosen for their combination of wine knowledge, café or restaurant experience, personal skills and their ability to keep calm under pressure. We very much hope that they make you feel welcome and that you enjoy your experience at The Oxford Wine Café!
