Steve joined Morris's in 1987, after working in the public house industry. He joined John Frazier when Morris's were sold to Vaux brewery and has since helped build the company to where it is today. He is passionate about the wine trade and likes nothing more than finding new and unusual wines to add to the Frazier's portfolio. He has produced the Frazier's wine catalogue for the last 20 years and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the company. He likes to design the wine lists for our trade customers and regularly holds tastings and talks on various wines from around the globe. He enjoys a nice glass of Rioja or on a summers day a nice light Pinot Noir or Provence Rosé, alternatively Estrella Inedit is his chosen tipple when out on the town!

His interests include Clay Pigeon shooting, cricket, rugby, golf and football although he has little time to indulge in his passions as his young son keeps him occupied! He is a Birmingham City supporter so is used to the challenges life throws at him!
