With over 30 years’ experience working in the UK Wines and Spirits trade, including 12 years as Sales Director for our company, Melissa took over as Managing Director in 2021. She is well known in the trade from her time in Senior Wines and Spirits Buying roles at Sainsbury’s. On one particular buying trip she fell in love with the magical world of Sherry and Jerez.
She is committed to supporting the next generation of wine professionals and is involved in education with the WSET, Wines from Spain’s Gran Orden de Caballeros and the UK’s Champagne Academy. Melissa loves nothing more than being amongst our customers, partners and trade friends sharing her enthusiasm for our wines and spirits. Always with glass half full!
Yorkshire lass Suzie is our queen of the multiples, having experienced the supermarkets from both sides of the desk with her background as a buyer. Combining her consummate sales professionalism with an astonishing ability to party, she makes everything look a lot easier than we know it is! Her commendable language skills come in handy when ordering rounds of more than “cuatro cervezas” for her team mates. Constantly kept on her toes by two boisterous sons, Suzie loves a glass or two of Beronia Reserva Rioja to relax at the end of the day.
