Woman of the Year

Laura Jewell MWWinner: Laura Jewell MW

Described as a “fantastic ambassador for the wine trade,” Laura Jewell MW was a compelling choice for 2013’s Woman of the Year. As product development manager at Tesco and chairman for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) – the first woman in this position in the trust’s 44-year history – Jewell is one of the wine world’s most influential figures. Indeed, late last year she was placed within the top 10 most powerful women in wine by the drinks business.

Jewell joined Tesco in September 2010 and is currently responsible for the wine range, overseeing the introduction of over 300 new lines in the last 12 months.

Jewell is also responsible for training all Tesco wine team members and wine advisors, and has taken on a role sourcing wines for Tesco stores in Central Europe and Asia.

Importantly, Jewell is also “really nice,” said one judge, while another agreed, saying, “She is a genuinely good person who works hard… she’s charming and hasn’t let success go to her head.”

Her commitment to education was also praised, both in her role at the WSET, at Tesco and as part of the Institute of Masters of Wine.
