The idea for Jackson & Seddon started over five years ago, when I thought it would be great to be able to share my passion for wine with my friends and family.
The idea moved forward a little, I designed the logo and started talking to wine wholesalers but then I was offered a job that I couldn’t turn down.
Turn the clock forward five years and I was one of ten people chosen to take part in a BBC TV reality documentary about starting a new life in Tuscany.
While in Tuscany I realised that Jackson & Seddon could actually be an idea again. I came up with the concept of crowdfunding the business and giving people the opportunity to pre-order small run, organic wines of outstanding quality.
