Angela Mount is to be announced as the new head of Gondola Wine, the new online wine retail site from Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Peter Jones.

Mount, former head wine buyer at Somerfield, has been working with Jones and the Gondola team for a number of months initially on the development and concept of the site, through to its launch and beyond.

Harpers.co.uk understands that Mount has now been asked by Jones to head up the operation as it looks to fast track its development and build up more contacts with suppliers and expand its range.

The site was devised as the first pure branded wine website offering exclusive deals for many supermarket best selling wines. Although recieved with some scepticism by many in the trade it is building strong support from branded wine companies faced with shrinking ranges within the supermarkets.

The site is reported to be taking between 800 and 1,000 orders a day thanks to its innovative use of internet search tracking and links with affiliated sites.

Deals at gondola.co.uk include Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc at £17.99, Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut Champagne at £24.99 and a case of Beringer wines for £34.99.

Mount is also expected to carry on with her other non-competitive wine consultancy work.
