Rose Livesey
Customer Service Manager

Rose's wine journey officially started in 2003, when she joined Warehouse Wines in her home county of Lancashire. Unofficially, it probably started with a bottle of White Zinfandel at a house party a few years earlier. She started in the Customer Services team, later progressing to Marketing Assistant and then Corporate Account Manager, staying with the company as it became Virgin Wines. In 2016, she finally left The Shire to chance her luck in the Big Smoke (a bit like Babe 2: A Pig in the City) and soon found a home at Armit Wines. She's gone full circle, working in Customer Services once more, putting her sunny disposition to good use. When she's not working or running around after her fiery red-headed toddler Rafferty, she enjoys eating, drinking (more Chablis these days) and trying to avoid losing her northern accent.

James Dowler
Senior Customer Service Advisor

After a stint studying Politics at Plymouth University and propping up some of the city’s wine bars; James began his journey into the wine trade with Majestic in 2003. After two years donning the infamous green shirt in various southern stores he ditched the T and headed off to Australia for a stint of travelling. Upon his return from Australia, James started working for Berkmann Wine Cellars in 2007, where he had almost every job role, ranging from Sales Support to Account Management in the off trade until 2015. James then joined the Armit Ranks in June 2015. A passion for sport, and a frustration with golf and tennis keep him busy in his spare time, as well as being married to a lawyer and being a father to his daughters Marina and Darcey!
