Chris Parker, the man behind New Horizon Wines, is originally from London, but has lived in Virginia for almost 20 years. Chris started to see the same international potential in Virginia as he had seen in other regions of the world. His passion for wine, culinary arts and the ‘wine lifestyle’, timed with the acquisition of the software company he co-founded, opened the door for Chris to begin a new chapter, and New Horizon Wines was born.
Virginia, with its historical connections to the U.K., is developing a reputation for world class wines that is now being recognized internationally. At New Horizon Wines we are proud to import into the UK, a hand-selected portfolio of high quality wines from Virginia.
“There is one man in London, Christopher Parker, who is a sort of a one-man band for promoting the wines of Virginia. And he has actually made quite an impact – he has got the listings.” — Jancis Robinson Toasts American Wines, Baird Auditorium, Washington DC, March 2013
