Helen McEvoy, judge for the DWWA Bordeaux and Spain panels in 2010

Helen McEvoy developed a love of wine while travelling around South America, visiting wineries in Chile and Argentina. Upon her return, she joined the wine buying team at Sainsbury’s before moving to Threshers, then in 2008, becoming a senior wine buyer for Direct Wines. Her love of Spanish wines has led to them accounting for 18% of all wine sold at Direct Wines. She also has buying responsibility for Eastern France and South Africa, and she has also helped the company to become registered to import Fairtrade wines and has ambitious plans to grow this range over the coming months.
