Waitrose adds Spar buyer Daphne Teremetz to buying team

21 June, 2016

Waitrose has bolstered its buying team with Spar’s Daphne Teremetz after Cat Lomax left the business to join Majestic Wine.

Teremetz has been responsible for a successful overhaul of Spar’s wine range and is now in charge of buying Bordeaux, Regional France, Alsace and South America for Waitrose.

Victoria Mason, who launched Outdoor Horticulture in Waitrose, has also joined the wine team. 

She will be responsible for South Africa, Loire, bag in box, small bottles, low-alcohol and kosher. 

Meanwhile Rebecca Hull MW has moved into a full time buying role and taken on the Champagne and Sparkling categories in addition to her current responsibility for England & Wales. 

That helps the retailer maintain its MW count after Ken Mackay MW left the business.

The full line-up of Waitrose buyers, led by Pierpaolo Petrassi MW, is as follows:

Rebecca Hull MW - Champagne, Sparkling, England and Wales

Maria Elener - Italy, Rhône, Eastern Europe, Austria and Other World

Nick Room - Spain, Portugal, Burgundy, Fortified and Sweet Wines

Alexandra Mawson - New Zealand, Australia, USA and Rosé 

Daphne Teremetz - Bordeaux, Regional France, Alsace and South America

Victoria Mason - South Africa, Loire, Bag in Box, Small Bottles, Low Alcohol and Kosher

Richard Hemming MW: beware inverse snobbery

Few things can bring communal pleasure so intimately as wine. Apart from a hot tub, perhaps. Sport can trigger mass jubilation, film gives us shared empathy, but wine has a nigh-unique ability to bestow conviviality among us through a shared bottle – which makes it especially galling that we spend so much time divided over it.
