Amathus South Kensington Store Staff

Joe Olding – Store Manager

Joe came to the drinks trade (as most do) accidentally.  After a degree in US literature followed by a move to London in 2010, he worked for a number of years in hospitality where he developed his fascination for and love of the world of wine.  Life in the capital was interspersed with stints on vineyards in Provence, South Africa and exotic Sussex before starting work with fine wine merchant Jeroboams then joining Amathus in December 2019.  

In his spare time he enjoys reading, writing, running, cooking, photography, making friends with the magpies that visit his south London balcony, shouting at people for using leaf blowers and desperately wants to make winemakers wakeup to their wantonly huge carbon footprints and how their vineyards can be havens of biodiversity.  

Like a wine geek cliché, he believes that at its best no grape in the world can rival the ethereal brilliance of pinot noir but also loves excellent viogniers, spicily oaked chardonnays and believes all dinners should start with a vesper martini.

Michael Huband – Assistant Manager

Michael is one of Soho’s Assistant Managers and he has been with Amathus since 2018. After a brief folly in teaching taught him to hate children (but love wine), he worked in fine dining restaurants and independent wine shops before moving to the big smoke. Michael literally opened his interview by declaring, “I’m pretty unfaithful – I love all sorts of wine,” but if he had to pick favourites, he would opt for anything Spanish, South African Chenin Blanc or quality Nebbiolo. But honestly, if it’s a decent bottle, he’ll drink it.

After two years working with Sam, he’s also now prone to dalliances with spirits (Cognac and Irish whiskey being particular weaknesses). He is passionate about wine education, having passed his WSET Level 3 courses in wine and in spirits (with the diploma a work in progress) and recently qualified as a wine educator. Outside of work, you can find him at your local theatre, sourdough bakery or bird-watching hide.
