Beth Willard

Australian born and bred, Beth Willard ‘fell’ into wine through a love of languages and travel. She started her wine career in events and promotions at Hardy’s Canberra winery, Kamberra, and then worked for a small family producer, Capital Wines.

Making the shift to Europe, Willard spent a year working at the Syndicat de Bordeaux before moving into buying. As part of the buying team for Direct Wines, her specialties and passions are Spain and Eastern Europe.

Beth Willard was first a judge at the DWWA in 2015.
