Welcome to the first community ‘AMA’ – ‘Ask Me Anything’ event.
Today we are very excited to be joined by Pierre Mansour, Head of Buying for The Wine Society. Pierre originally came to The Society as Tastings and PR Manager and has been a buyer for the last 14 years, so has a wealth of experience to share. You can read a fuller profile of Pierre on the main Society site
The initial topic today, to kick-off the discussions is Pierre’s thoughts on “What to Drink in 2018”, with his suggestions for vintages and regions worth exploring this year. However, the AMA format also means that you can ask those questions you’ve always wanted to ask, so prepare for some variety!
This promises to be an exciting session that puts YOU in the interview chair.
Please note that, unfortunately, Pierre and the buying team cannot guarantee to be able to answer all questions posted in the community every day, so having key members of the team available ‘live’ is a great opportunity for those who aren’t able to pop along to the tastings to meet them in person. Of course, if you have any important questions or issues to raise, you can always send these via Member Services at any point.
Do feel free to respond to questions or topics raised here, and if these conversations develop we can always turn them into conversations for the community to reply to.
We will start with those questions you’ve already sent in, but do feel free to ask any follow-up questions or to post new questions below for Pierre, and anyone who joins us.
