DWWA 2013 Spain Judging Panel
After studying French and Business at university, Helen McEvoy joined the Sainsbury’s Graduate Training Scheme as a Trainee Buyer in the Wine Department and was instantly hooked on wine. After spending eight years buying wine for various UK retailers, Helen took a sabbatical break to work the 2012 vintage in New Zealand. Upon her return to the UK, she re-joined Direct Wines to manage the Wine Buying Team. At the start of 2013 she moved into the role of Head of Retail for Laithwaite’s Wine, where her knowledge and experience in the wine trade is being put to great use with store staff and customers alike.
