Roberta Neave

Category Buying Manager -at Wine and Soft Drinks at Star Pubs & Bars

After an early career in corporate headhunting, Roberta decided her love of wine was too great to ignore, and so decided to spend a year in Australia’s Yarra Valley, working the vintage and gaining cellar hand experience at numerous commercial and boutique wineries. This solidified her passion and she hasn’t looked back since!

Roberta is now the Category Buyer for Wine for both Heineken’s free trade business and the Heineken owned Star Pubs & Bars, a 3000 strong UK pub business. Prior to this, she was the Buyer for German and latterly New Zealand wine at Tesco UK.
