Jamie Hutchinson is a judge at the 2016 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

Jamie Hutchinson profile:

Jamie Hutchinson is the chairman, buyer and co-founder of independent wine merchant The Sampler. After a career in venture capital, Hutchinson opened The Sampler in Islington in 2006, followed by a South Kensington branch in 2011, and plans to open other shops in the future.

Hutchinson’s passions are Sherry, traditional Rioja, grower Champagne and Beaujolais, while his weaknesses are for wines with personality and that go against normal commercial conventions.
