Biography

Simon read Biochemistry at Bristol University before joining Majestic Wine on their graduate trainee management scheme. He managed various stores including one of Majestic's flagship central London stores. During his time at Majestic, he became a certified tutor for the WSET, delivering in-house courses to Majestic Wine's employees. He then moved to the independent sector and worked for the Sampler Wine Merchant where his role included buying Italian wines. After the Sampler, he moved to Domaine Direct to look after retail sales, where he had the opportunity to indulge in his love for the wines of Burgundy. He currently works as part of the WSET Awards team, in particular working on the development of the Diploma assessment.
