Laure Patry announced as Imbibe Live 2016 wine ambassador
To develop Imbibe Live’s wine offering for the sommeliers and wine buyers attending, Imbibe Live is delighted to welcome Laure Patry as its new wine ambassador.
Laure Patry has overseen the wine offering at Claridge’s, launched Maze with Gordon Ramsay, and was head sommelier for the launch of Jason Atherton’s Pollen Street Social. She then managed the drinks for the rollout of Atherton’s large portfolio of restaurants, including sites in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Dubai.
Laure is currently executive head sommelier for The Social Company and also personally runs Social Wine & Tapas in London’s Marylebone. She has extensive experience of putting together restaurant lists and her expertise will add invaluable input to the compelling programme this year.
Patry said: ‘It’s a real pleasure to be involved with Imbibe Live this year. We are planning lots of extra-special sessions to ensure the wine side of the show goes from strength to strength, including more sommelier-focused activities.’
The wine sessions will include expert-led masterclasses from the best names in the industry and tutored tastings by world-renowned wine producers.
