Adam Raffety - Head of Trading
Adam's career in wine started in the cellars of his family's business, which encouraged him (after years spent in recruitment and a couple of winters skiing) to pursue his passion for wine and join Liv-ex as an exchange manager.
Joining Armit Wines in 2010 Adam now heads the Trading team, whose responsibilities include selling to and buying from other merchants and global wine funds, the valuation of client reserve portfolios, managing agency allocations to partnering merchants and sourcing rare and exciting parcels for sale by the business.
Outside the world of wine Adam is a lifelong Wasps rugby fan, a passionate skier and an erratic golfer.
Will start working in the wine trade part-time whilst reading history at Trinity College Dublin in 2002; working at Mitchell and Son. After a brief, ill-advised job working for a bank he returned, inevitably, to the wine trade. During stints at BBR and RDFW, he developed a taste for a broad range of wines but the wines of Burgundy, Tuscany and Germany always feature strongly.
Since joining Armit Wines in October 2013, he is developing a taste for the best that Piedmont has to offer. Will’s role involves dealing with UK and international merchants, negociants and brokers.
