Katrina Smith – Katrina is an award-winning wine professional with 10 years experience in the industry. Her journey in wine started in 2011 in the South of France where she helped out with a local grape harvest. Since then, Katrina has worked in retail, shipping and tourism, with her most recent role in education at Hambledon Vineyard in Hampshire. Katrina completed her WSET Diploma in 2018, picking up the Louis Jadot prize for outstanding results and the McNie Trophy for best tasting marks globally. Now enrolled onto the Master of Wine course, Katrina is slowly coming to terms with her unrelenting study (and wine) addiction.
Katie Goodchild – Heritage Wines founder Katie Goodchild was raised in Suffolk where, after studying journalism at university, she began a career in hospitality. Working for Marco Pierre White during this time inspired Katie to explore the world of wine. In doing so she moved over to the wine industry and joined Majestic Wine, whilst also studying for the WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) Level 3 and Diploma exams. Certified as a WSET Diploma holder in April 2019, Katie wanted a new challenge and so Heritage Wines was founded.
