KEVIN LATOUF, FOUNDER THE WINE BUTLER

Kevin is a wine expert, entrepreneur and former England cricketer. 

Whilst competing in Australia, Kevin had his first taste of organic wine on a trip to a winery, during some down time. 

For Kevin, one taste was enough to become hooked to the cleaner, more flavoursome taste of organic wine. When his sports career came to a close, Kevin dove straight into the wine industry, travelling, researching and curating organic wines from around the world.

Kevin's passion became the basis for Wine Butler, an organic wine subscription business sharing the finest organic wines from around the world. 

Launched in 2016, Wine Butler has fast become a leader in the organic wine movement, and enjoys an ever-growing subscription list of happy customers.  Most recently Wine Butler was featured in GQ. 

Kevin is passionate about educating people as to the benefits of drinking organic wine, travelling and long dinners in hot countries.
