Laura Rhys started working at Hotel du Vin Winchester just after Gerard and his business partners had sold the Hotel du Vin group to the owners of Malmaison.  Two years later, when Laura heard that Gerard was going to start a hotel in the New Forest, she asked him if she could be part of it.  So in June 2007, two months before Hotel TerraVina started trading, Laura was employed as the Head Sommelier.  During her time at Hotel TerraVina Laura has enjoyed successes in major sommelier competitions (Young UK Sommelier of the Year 2008 and UK Sommelier of the Year 2009) and obtained her Master Sommelier Diploma, as well as being awarded the Chairman’s Award, Imbibe Magazine, Personality of the Year Awards 2013 and the Academy of Food and Wine Service, Award of Excellence, 2012. In addition, she proved to be immensely talented and popular in looking after the guests at TerraVina and devising the wine list of the hotel.  Six years after her debut with Hotel TerraVina, Laura is moving on and like many of Gerard’s past protégées, we are immensely proud of her, we wish her well and are confident she will be a great success.  Tonight, Laura will talk about her experiences and being recognised as a British and female Sommelier in the world of Sommeliers, often dominated by French males and she will comment the wines she has specially selected for her dinner.
