Maggie Macpherson is a judge at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).
Maggie stumbled across wine (quite literally) during her third year at Edinburgh University. She then joined the Uni Wine Society and quickly signed up for the Pol Roger Varsity Blind Tasting team where in her first competition she received the top taster prize. This piqued her curiosity and she set out on a mission for the rest of her uni days to not only drink as much delicious wine as she could but to also learn as much as she could about wine as a whole, even choosing to focus her dissertation on the Country of Origin effect on the consumer decision making process.
Fast forward six years and Maggie find herself as a Buyer at one of the UKs leading premium Wine & Spirits distributor – Enotria&Coe. She started 5 years ago as an assistant buyer and she now covers a wonderful array of wines from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, North America, England and Lebanon.
Maggie recently completed the WSET diploma and also an introduction to winemaking course to further develop her technical knowledge of wine.
