The Judges

Shane McHugh

Group Wine Buyer at Goodman Restaurant Holdings Ltd

I started out working in bars and primarily hotels in the west of Ireland, for my brother Martin who I now ironically work with at my current company. I decided to jump into a hospitality degree and was windswept by the wine module - I was all over it. This led to a summer opening hilariously expensive wine on Long Island, New York which then prompted me to jump into the world of wine in London in 2014.
