WineTrust100 appoints ex-Harrods and M&S MW

Jo Ahearne MW, a fully qualified and practiced winemaker with retail experience that includes being a wine selector for Marks & Spencer and head wine buyer at Harrods, has joined WineTrust100.

She will be involved in selecting wines for the online retailer’s list of 100 wines - chosen for being the best examples of their type, for the price, from all over the world. She will work alongside Nick Adams MW, who has been part of the WineTrust100 team since its launch in March 2013.

WineTrust100 founder, wine enthusiast and marketer, John Valentine, said: “I am very excited to be welcoming Jo Ahearne to our team. Jo is an incredibly talented MW with sourcing experience gained at some fantastic wine retailers.

“Jo also has hands on understanding of making wine. WineTrust100 prides itself on listing sensational wines, the majority of which are made by smaller, family-owned companies. I think her knowledge of wine production will help reinforce this distinct part of our business.

“I am very much looking forward to working with Jo and Nick to build the WineTrust100 brand further in the months ahead.”
