DWWA judge profile: Jamie Hutchinson

Jamie Hutchinson is a judge at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).

Jamie Hutchinson profile:

Jamie Hutchinson is the chairman and co-founder of independent wine merchant The Sampler, with branches in Islington and Wimbledon in London. He has also recently started his own winery in South-west France called the Domaine d’Audaux, making whites from the local varieties and hopes to begin replanting a long abandoned local vineyard with syrah later this year.

Hutchinson’s passions are Sherry, traditional Rioja, grower Champagne and regional french reds, while his weaknesses are for wines with personality and that go against normal commercial conventions.

Jamie Hutchinson was first a judge at the DWWA in 2011.
