DWWA 2013 Argentina Judging Panel
Anne Forrest is the Italian Buyer at Laithwaites Wine and is also responsible for Portugal, Argentina, fortified wine, and spirits. Before joining the wine trade, Anne's first love was languages, and consequently she speaks Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese. Her first wine job was with Arblaster and Clarke Wine Tours, where she worked during university holidays, and after graduating she taught English in Rome for a year, and then in Madrid for three years, before returning to the UK in 2005 to work with Laithwaites Wine in its sales team. Anne quickly moved into the Buying Department and has been looking after a number of different regions ever since.
