Christine ParkinsonThe wine occasion masterclasses are devised and led by Christine Parkinson from Brimful Drinks. Christine is best known for her work as Group Head of Wine for Hakkasan, although she has also been a Head Chef and worked in Operations. With a focus on improving, she led restaurant teams worldwide to multiple ‘Best Wine List’ awards. She also developed a class-leading sake operation, then set up an in-house no & low drinks research project. Her globally-based team sourced products, recipes and techniques from around the world and developed several new drinks. The resulting ‘Orchard List’ was one of the first significant no/lo offerings by a restaurant group.
