"Melissa joins us at an exciting time for our business, when we are expanding both our Spanish wine portfolio and adding agency business such as Jackson Estate and Quinta Do Noval."

Draycott added: "I am excited about the new challenge at Gonzalez Byass and the opportunity to work in a supplier business and see the trade from that side is just too good to miss. Gonzalez Byass is a highly respected and successful company with a clear idea of where they're heading, making them a very attractive company to join."
