Richard Volpi
National Accounts Manager

With a father who worked at Venice's Locanda Cipriani and Harry's Bar, The Carlton Tower and The Savoy, wine was a constant part of Richard's youth. He developed a keen enthusiasm for the wine trade and joined Marne et Champagne Diffussion UK (now known as Lanson International) in 1996. After five years in the Specialist sector, a move to Western Australia's Palandi Wines (Europe) followed, and from 2003 Richard was at the forefront of PLB Group's drive into the Specialist and On-Trade sectors.

Richard lives in Rowde, near Devizes in Wiltshire, with wife Jane and their two children Matt and Becca. A passion for sport, a frustration with golf and the love of food keep him busy in his spare time.
