Linda was a successful futures and options trader in the City when her passion for wine blossomed. After intensive study and experience as a collector, Linda moved into the business full time, and was head-hunted to work for several leading wine producers on their marketing campaigns, tastings and promotional work.
In 2001 Linda began working for Wine Australia UK in their London office, organising events, and initiating marketing and trade and press visits to Australia. Linda passed the prestigious Wine & Spirit Education Trust basic and higher certificates and Diploma with flying colours and attended several wine making courses at Plumpton College, gaining a Merit in Sensory Evaluation of Wine. Now freelance, Linda’s focus is wine education and promotion. As a WSET Certified Educator, Linda is an exam marker up to diploma level for the WSET and is on the judging panel for the IWSC.
