Top 50 most powerful women in wine: 40-31

39. SARAH MILES

Promoted to managing director of Diageo Wines Europe this August, Miles’ first mission at the world’s largest drinks company has been to freshen up the company’s buying and marketing teams across Europe. Having joined Diageo in 2002 as strategy director, in her new role Miles oversees operations at Diageo’s fine wine and independent businesses, Justerini & Brooks and Percy Fox & Co. Keen to develop J&B’s private client side of the business and nurture relationships with serious investors around the globe, Miles is focusing on Burgundy, Riesling and Barolo as well as Bordeaux. She is also looking to develop J&B’s on-trade operations with top restaurants.

  1. Steve Webb says:

    I do hope Sandrine Garbay is top – she does after all make the best wine in the world bar none!

    • Martin Campion says:

      Steve, Sandrine comes a close second, but top spot surely goes to Katharina Pum. Berenice Lurton is # three, obviously.

  2. I would Tanya Torr right up very close to the top .
