Simon Field to leave BBR

Longstanding Berry Bros & Rudd buyer Simon Field MW is to leave the UK fine wine merchant at the end of the month.

After 20 years at the company, Field has announced his resignation as wine buyer, BBR confirmed to the drinks business.

He joined the company in 1998 after several, in his words, “misguided but lucrative years” as a charted accountant in the City.

He is best known for his work on BBR’s Spanish portfolio and his commitment to Spanish wine has led to him being inducted into the Gran Orden de Caballeros del Vino.

Other areas of expertise include the Rhône, the Loire and Champagne.

Abi Hirshfeld, buying director at BBR commented: “We wish to thank Simon for all his work and dedication to the business and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.”
