Plumpton College creates wine brand manager position

Published:  23 August, 2018

Plumpton College has appointed Danielle Whitehead to the role of wine brand manager - a newly created position.

Whitehead will in her new role manage the sales and marketing of Plumpton Estate’s wine portfolio across both the on and off-trade.

Taking up her new position with immediate effect, Whitehead joins from Enotria & Coe where she was senior brand manager.

Prior to this, Whitehead, who graduated from Plumpton College in 2012 with a BSc Viticulture & Oenology degree, worked as a brand manager for Hallgarten & Novum wines.

Bringing with her 13 years of industry experience, Whitehead was an “excellent addition” to the team, said Chris Foss, manager, Plumpton wine division.

“Danielle has a wealth of experience in the wine industry and her work with our recently rebranded portfolio will further showcase the quality, premium wine being produced,” he said.

With the “ever-growing” potential of the English wine category and the recent re-branding of Plumpton Estate wines, Whitehead said she saw “great potential” for the portfolio.

“I studied here a few years ago and so am well aware of the great work that is done and the quality of the wines produced.”

Plumpton Estate wines are sold throughout the South East of England in independent retailers & restaurants as well as in some regional Waitrose and M&S stores.
