Beverly Tabbron MW
Having started in the wine trade back in 1978, 1996 was a busy year as I passed my MW and in the same year, took on the responsibility for buying at Hallgarten Druitt based in Bedfordshire. Since 2014 I have taken on a new role combining buying with particular emphasis on our French portfolio with new responsibilities as Head of Training and Education leading a team of 2 trainers who are both WSET Certified Educators and Diploma holders.
Having started my wine journey with Majestic Wines in 2007 I have now gained experience in many aspects of the industry. I completed my WSET Level 4 Diploma in 2010, and in 2011 started working with Hallgarten as a wine trainer. I am a WSET certified educator for Levels 1 to 3 and thoroughly enjoy engaging with people working in, and learning about, the wine world. In January 2014 I spent a year away, working in Margaret River and Napa Valley as a cellar hand to gain hands-on experience of the wine production process. This was an incredible opportunity to really develop my understanding of all aspects of wine and develop my capacity as an all-round trainer and educator.
I have a large amount of restaurant management experience both in Toronto, Canada and the United Kingdom, having managed restaurants such as Alma de Cuba in Liverpool and Blackhouse Grill. I currently work as Wine Trainer at Hallgarten Druitt .I aim to give confidence to the bar and restaurant staff I train by passing on my passion and experience. I have finished WSET Level 4 Diploma so I also run WSET courses for Hallgarten. I love exploring the wine world and visiting wineries all over the world.
