Chris Hardy

Chris Hardy joined Majestic as a Trainee Manager in July 1994, and moved into the Buying Department in June 1995. Initially responsible for Fine Wine purchases and putting together Majestic's first ever En Primeur campaign, Chris gradually took on the buying responsibility for most of France as well as Australia, South Africa and North America. Over the past 18 years he has bought from most of the wine regions of the world but, being a true Francophile, he has more recently focused on France. Chris is passionate about all the classic regions but is particularly interested in both the Loire and the Languedoc, due to the diversity of wine styles produced in both regions.
