We’re Talya Roberson and Simon Huntington.
We set up Marasby because the UK is the world’s most exciting cool-climate wine region.
Yet 99% of the wine we drink here is still imported.
Join Marasby, and help us to grow the 1%.
Before Marasby, we worked together as Commercial Director and Managing Director at a major wine importer known for its American wine specialism. Under our tenure, the company won USA Specialist Importer of the Year 7 years running.
We wanted to take everything we learnt building this specialism and apply it to building the profile of our own amazing, emerging, home-grown industry.
So, where does the name ‘Marasby’ come from? It’s named after Talya’s three daughters: Margot, Astrid, and Blythe.
I love cooking, eating great food and drinking exceptional wine with friends and family. In the summer of 2022, I only ate and drank UK produce and it blew my tastebuds away. Since then about 85% of what I eat and drink is grown locally. There’s a quality and taste revolution happening in the UK food and wine scene, come and join us and let’s discover British delicious together.
We built MARASBY to be a trusted place where you can find helpful and interesting content about British-grown food and wine.
