Wines & Spirits Executive
Sammy has been working in the wine industry for 9 years, since she turned 18. Her passion for the industry stemmed from helping her Nan make fruit wines for her grandfather as a child. Having worked for two of the UKs’ major B2C wine retailers, she has held a variety of positions. Sammy completed her WSET advanced in 2013 and is currently studying towards her WSET Diploma. Starting out in wine sales, she has held positions including Wine Advisor, General Manager (of a busy city centre bar), Development Director of an online wine app, tasting room manager (in Napa, CA), and most recently as Wine Development Executive working mostly in NPD.
When Sammy’s not nerding about wine, she regularly attends festivals and gigs – or is at home cooking up a feast for family and friends.
