Cliff Roberson – Managing Director

Without Cliff's drive, enthusiasm and work ethic, Roberson Wine would not be where it is today (or, indeed, anywhere at all). Cliff has worked in the wine trade for more years than he cares to remember, founding Roberson Wine in 1991 and his other main business, Buckingham Vintners, in 1974. He remains one of the true characters of the industry.

If you haven't heard it before, check out Cliff's rap about his life in wine (right click and choose to save it for future listening).

Keith Kirkpatrick – Buyer

Keith joined Roberson in 2010 and after many years in on-trade sales he is now the agency buyer. Keith has been around wine from an early age when he used to help out in his family's restaurant business in Ireland. His general knowledge is particularly acute, making him a useful man to have on your side at Roberson’s legendary pub quiz nights.

Max Edge V3


Max Edge – Operations Executive

After studying at university in Norwich, Max began a career in hospitality, starting as a bartender to become Assistant General Manager for a multi-site group. All that time pouring drinks and mixing cocktails awoke a real passion for all things liquid and a desire to work in the wine industry. Joining Roberson in March 2019, Max is now getting used to having a normal bedtime. Outside of the office, Max is a passionate home cook, always trying new recipes from all four corners of the world.

Jacquie Jeffery – PA to Cliff Roberson

Although Cliff is his own department, that department wouldn't work quite as well without Jacquie as his P.A. In her spare time, Jacquie loves nothing better than sharing her love of fine wine and cooking with friends and family. When she’s not looking after Cliff, you'll find her cooking up a storm in the kitchen, strolling through Richmond Park with her beloved Westie or putting her green fingers to good use in the garden.
