Meet The Pip Crew

The Pip Boss - Ben

I am the owner of The Pip Stop and my vision is to create a destination point in the North East and something a little more quirky than your average wine outlet.We offer specialist wine you wont see anywhere else, world and local beers, personalised labeling, monthly wine tastings and lots more.

My favourite wines would include aged Riesling or a weighty and rich Zinfandel or Valpolicella. Whether you're a wine lover or a beer buff, we will have all your needs covered here at The Pip Stop. 

Pull into one of our Pip bays and fuel your curiosity...


The Coordinator - Jen Scott

Having previously worked in retail and completed a History degree The Pip Stop Assistant is my first role within the wine business.

I am enjoying tasting new wines and expanding my wine knowledge - I love the Miss Pip Stop White Zinfandel; with its fruity flavours it's getting me in the mood for summer!


The Beer Guru- David Smith

I'm a journalism graduate from Peterlee just starting out in the world of wine. I'm loving the opportunity to immerse myself in this new realm of flavours and expand my horizons, soaking up as much knowledge as I can.

My personal favourite wine is the McPherson's Chapter 3 Chardonnay. It's a beautiful rich wine from my personal favourite winery.

I love perusing and sampling our current beer range, exploring all the new and exciting styles as they come in. Keep up to date with our selection by following me on Untappd.
