Chef and restaurateur Sean Millar has launched his new venture, Pruno Wines. Best known as head chef and co-founder of the former Hope Street restaurant the Side Door, Sean plans to supply speciality wines to the region’s hospitality industry as well as being an online wine merchant.
Sean ran Side Door with business partner, Sheila Benson, for more than six years. Stalwarts of the city’s thriving food and drink scene, the duo were also behind The Other Place on Allerton Road in Mossley Hill and, more recently, Pruno Bistro on Woolton Road in Childwall.
Sean has now moved away from running restaurants and is looking forward to turning his passion for wines into a successful business.
“I’ve been running restaurants for as long as I can remember and I’ve always been passionate about wines so it makes perfect sense to combine the two through Pruno Wines,” he says.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to have already established a strong network of independent vineyard owners and I’m really looking forward to introducing some of their fantastic wines to the region’s restaurants, bars and hotels. Our hand-picked wines are also available to buy online so there will be plenty of choice for wine lovers on the lookout for interesting new wines to try.”
