Christine really owes her love of wine to her grandfather, spending many summers drinking through his well-stocked cellar in Germany, and developing a love for Riesling. Having graduated with a Masters in War Studies, Christine started her career in the whisky industry in Scotland before the temptation to join the wine industry became too much. With years of experience across Buying, Marketing and Sales, Christine joined the team in September 2014 as Brand Manager. Now Marketing Director, Christine currently manages Domaine Faiveley, Domaine Billaud-Simon, Marqués de Murrieta, Pazo Barrantes and Rapaura Springs, as well as steering her team of Brand Managers. A self-confessed wine geek and lover of all things Spain, Christine has worked vintages in Rioja and Calatayud and holds her Diploma in Wine and Spirits, passed with Distinction. Christine was awarded the Wines of Great Britian Prize for outstanding achievement in the Global Business of Wine exams while studying for her diploma. Outside of the workplace, Christine makes everyone jealous with her globetrotting in search of the next culinary feast, playing tennis, reading, and finding a little zen through yoga.
