"Deborah always delivers an evening of wine education that is fun and engaging. I always go away feeling inspired to try something different."

Based close to Epsom in easy reach of Surrey and South West London, Deborah’s interest in wine became a true passion after starting a career at Ehrmanns in 2000.

Before moving to focus on wine education, her previous life as a brand marketing manager (Ehrmanns, Treasury Wine Estates and Accolade Wines) gave the opportunity to work with diverse mix of well-loved wine household names and smaller boutique brands.

After one marketing plan too many, she set up Wine Confidence in 2016 (a WSET Approved Programme Provider), to focus on offering an accessible route to learning more about wine. Deborah is used to presenting and hosting a mix of classes and courses and offers Staff training, Corporate Events, Wine Parties, evening classes and WSET courses – always with a down-to-earth, approachable presentation style.

With a strong commercial background Deborah is also available as a tastings host for wine/trade events and for wine consultancy projects.
