Rebecca Palmer heads up a buying team of 6 (all but one are women!), having for the past decade worked at Corney & Barrow Ltd.

Corney & Barrow, wine merchants since 1780, are based in the UK and Asia, and holders of two Royal Warrants. Best known for exclusive distribution in the UK and Asia of many of the world’s most prestigious wine estates e.g. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Domaine Leflaive, Conterno, Pingus, etc, though they work with brands at all price points.

Rebecca has a broad insight not just into buying but also the demands of supplying multi-channel – private customers, on-trade, corporate and travel retail, as well as independents,
including some of the UK’s most prestigious tables.  Her 22 years experience in the industry make her a perfect selection as a Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards Judge

Rebecca Palmer, Wine Buyer

“I love wine and the trade of it.  My mission is twofold – firstly, to help bring these producers, their wines and their stories to more people, who (I hope) will love them; and secondly: to help more people to discover and enjoy wine, whatever their budget.  Wine should be fun rather than stuffy and intimidating.
