A spontaneous university summer spent doing vintage in Bordeaux marked the start of a life-long passion and set the course for the rest of Alex’s life. 3 years in South Africa and 2 vintages later she returned to London to expand her knowledge and experience. The past 10 years have been spent working in the premium London on-trade, marketing, brand ambassadorial roles and brand management. Always keen to expand her horizons Alex embarked upon the Master of Wine course, winning the Reh Kendermann scholarship though yet to achieve the coveted letters after her name. In the meantime she qualified as a WSET educator and won the Young Wine Writer of the Year Award. Alex’s spare time revolves around her demanding Jack Russell, kick boxing, jet skiing, the gym and as much fine wine and travel as possible.
