Jonathan Sutton

Jonathan Sutton owns Michael Sutton Cellar Wine Merchants just outside Dartmouth in Stoke Fleming.

Jonathan was born and bred in Stoke Fleming and has recently returned to Devon, after a 30 year absence, with his wife, Suzie, to run the family wine business set up by his father Michael.

After leaving University, Jonathan joined the Royal Navy and served for 16 years. During that time he visited many countries including Croatia which he fell in love with. After leaving the RN he returned to Croatia and started a property business on the Dalmatian Coast. He divides his time between the wine business and travelling to Split.

Anyone who knows him understands his genuine passion for learning more about both wine and food. He is currently studying for the next level of WSET exams. Taking Michael Sutton’s Cellar into the 21st century has been very exciting and he has a dogged determination to make wine buying unintimidating for all and encouraging customers to be more confident in knowing what they like and exploring new wines.
