James Nathan

The Originator

Always keen to discover and explore exciting new wines, James has spent a decade selling, making and sourcing wine for small independent wine merchants, finding the time for a healthy amount of sampling throughout.
He has six years experience in the hospitality and marketing industries designing menus, creating recipes for cookery books, creating websites, and building brands for small businesses. He has put his experiences together to create this user-friendly website for oenophiles and daily drinkers alike.

On weekends you will find James either on an adventure or having some much-needed family time in the west-country. The wine he won't be seen without is the Anima Negre, A/N 2.

Christopher Bullivant

Our Guest Blogger

Chris Bullivant is a British writer living in Pimlico, London.

A published commentator and speechwriter, he has a palate shaped by his love of Spanish culture and years lived in Washington DC neighbouring Virginia’s many wineries, enjoying rustic Riojas or metallic Pinot grigio’s.

Pull The Cork is owned and operated by James Nathan and Moritz Bak, and with help from Chris Bullivant – we are a young, dynamic and an extremely passionate team.

We believe that people are growing more and more conscious about their health and the environment. They also, therefore, take a large interest in the products they use, where they are coming from, and how they are made.

We source our wines from all over the world, and we also like to offer our customers something from less known varieties and countries. The vast majority of our wines are natural, either organically or biodynamically produced, fermented with indigenous yeast, and made with some minimum interventions from the picking in the vineyard all the way to the bottle. We are simply after quality, natural produce and diversity.

Whether it’s simple wines for the everyday table, impressive wines for those special occasions, or a wedding wine for that special day. We pride our business on being an easy to use platform for the very best low intervention wines that are out there.

How are we different from any other wine shop?

We have developed a new way to buy wine online – Pull The Cork is the only marketplace for sustainably produced wine. It’s the only place where you can search through the very best selection of wines from wholesalers across the country and receive delivery straight from them eliminating the middleman costs to get your wine to you faster.

How would I know these wines are up to standard?

We’ve spent the last decade sourcing these incredible wines. We’re constantly trying to cover every price point, region, style, occasion and sustainability. These wines have been taste tested rigorously by the team and have also been poured by some of the Uk’s top Sommeliers.

Our wines are sourced from wholesalers that sell to the UK’s top restaurants, making the wines we have totally unique. The vast majority of these wines, you won’t find anywhere else. There is also a small percentage of our wines that are on an allocation basis, so only we have exclusive access to sell these incredibly diverse wines.
