About Us Nebuchadnezzar Wines Ltd was founded organically out of an obsessive passion for drinking and collecting fine wine. We have been collecting great wines for a number of years and have now accumulated a cellar to rival many London merchants. The key to Nebuchadnezzar wines is passion followed closely by low margins and great service. Barry Skarin Barry’s love of fine wine came from Switzerland where he went as a commis sommelier to work the season in a hotel and was given the job of opening the bottles of some of France’s greatest wines. After returning to London in the early nineties to become the Head Sommelier at the 1 star Michelin Canteen for Marco Pierre White and Michael Caine, he soon progressed through the ranks to become wine buyer for the Group. Then a move to work for Ian Schrager Hotels as Food & Beverage Director was another eye opener which lead him to open his first restaurant, The Greyhound at Stockbridge, which achieved 1 star Michelin. Barry has been buying en Primeur since 1995 and has developed some great relationships within the industry, both here and overseas. Matthew Oakley A professional footballer for almost 20 years.
