Lindsay Talas joined Thierry's in 2004 as Buying Director for Italian, Iberian, South African and South American wines, later venturing further afield to Croatia, and India. In November 2012 Lindsay moved to a new venture, Watermill wines, and now combines buying these areas with selling to key accounts. Starting her wine career in 1988 during a gap year spent working for Oddbins, Lindsay then moved to Bordeaux to take a bilingual European Business Studies degree and followed this up with the WSET Diploma, during which she was awarded the Italian Scholarship. Lindsay has spent 12 years in the multiple grocer sector where she worked as a Senior Buyer for Sainsbury’s and later, as Senior Product Development Manager at Tesco, where she was responsible for the launch of the Finest* wine range. Passionate about Italian and Spanish wines, Lindsay has judged in major wine competitions for more than 10 years.
