Jo Ahearne April 2014WineTrust100 has announced it has appointed a further Master of Wine (MW) to strengthen it sourcing and selection capabilities.

Jo Ahearne MW 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 is working alongside Nick Adams MW, who has been part of the WineTrust100 team since its launch in March 2013.

Ahearne is a fully qualified and practiced winemaker and has retail experience that includes previous positions as winemaker and wine selector for Marks & Spencer and head wine buyer at Harrods.

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 Master of Wine, 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.”
