Senior Management Team
Hannah Sifleet – General Manager
Hannah recently 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.
Daniel Grant – Assistant Manager
Daniel joined the Wine Cafe in January of 2018 from our sister bar Sandy’s Piano Bar. He was instrumental in setting up the wine side in the city centre and has now come to join us to continue his good work. Daniel has recently passed his WSET level 3 in Oxford and has a passion for Old wine wines, in particular Barolo and Barbaresca. If you are interested in trying anything different or simply want to have a glass of something tasty then Danny is your man.
Josh Webber – Assistant 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 signing up to do 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!
