Based close to Epsom in easy reach of Surrey and South West London, Deborah’s interest in wine became a true passion after starting a career at Ehrmanns in 2000.

Before moving into wine education, her previous life as a brand manager (Ehrmanns, Treasury Wine Estates and Accolade Wines) gave the opportunity to work with diverse mix of well-loved wine household names and smaller boutique brands.

Deborah set up Wine Confidence in 2016 (a WSET Approved Programme Provider), to focus on offering an accessible route to learning more about wine. Deborah is used to presenting and hosting a mix of classes and courses and offers Staff training, Corporate Events, Wine Parties, evening classes and WSET courses – always with a down-to-earth, approachable presentation style.

After running Wine Confidence alongside a number of other wine consultancy projects as an experienced freelancer she joined Hatch Mansfield in 2019, currently in the role of Communication and Consumer Marketing Manager.
