TRADE RELATIONS + CONSULTANCY

Westbury is a wine-specific PR, trade relations and market development consultancy.

Westbury was founded in 1992 by Sue Harris, Managing Director, who has over 25 years experience in the UK and international wine trade.

We have a professional and dynamic approach to the industry and are widely regarded as one of the top wine agencies in the UK.

OUR CLIENTS

I've been working with Westbury Communications for several years now, and it has been a delight. Sue always hires the best, smartest PR professionals, and they are very active, reaching out and getting to know journalists and working in partnership with them. They never waste my time and if I need anything they are responsive. And I've always found their press trips to be well organised, relevant and interesting.

Wine Writer

Westbury is the pre-eminent specialist company doing wine-related PR for their clients in the UK. Those who work for them are genuinely interested in wine (over and above their jobs) and have a strong handle on what makes the market tick. They always do detailed research to create and adapt their strategies, and are very well-connected with journalists and opinion-formers.

I have found their marketing strategies to be original, imaginative and targeted. They considerably helped to raise the profile in the trade of two of their major clients recently.

On a personal note, whenever I have dealt with Westbury, I have found them to be very efficient, friendly and enthusiastic.

Director, Les Caves de Pyrene

Westbury has been working for years on the notoriety of our wines in the UK. Sue has always been able to surround herself with the best people to convey our passion to the best British and European journalists. This relationship with the press is essential but they also maintain excellent relations with the entire UK wine trade. I rarely give my opinion about a person or an agency, but if I had to select the best agency, it would be Westbury.

Export director, Plaimont Producteurs

OUR TEAM

Sue Harris

 Sue established Westbury in 1992, following six years as a director of top ten PR agency, GCI, part of the American Grey Group.  Under Sue’s direction the agency has become the leading wine PR and marketing specialist working for retailers, generics, soft brands and larger brands from all over the globe.
 

Ruth Morrell

Ruth has been in the wine trade her whole life having grown up in a family wine business in New York City (Morrell & Co, New York’s finest wine merchant). Ruth’s experience has been gained from working in every major wine producing region across Europe and California where she has worked a vintage, stacked shelves, led vineyard tours, organised events and run PR, sales and marketing campaigns. She brings a strong commercial background to Westbury and also speaks fluent French.

Anny Vexler

Anny first caught the wine bug after tasting a special bottle of Barolo. After a few years of spending most her salary on wine, Anny convinced Loire producer Domaine Mosse to let her join the 2015 harvest team. In 2016 she started working for Newcomer Wines – a central European importer – where she spent a few years mastering the pronunciation of ‘Gemischter Satz’. At Newcomer Wines Anny wore many hats – from being head of communications to taking charge of wine buying responsibilities for the shop. Anny is now using her knowledge of the UK market to help wineries and generics work out the best route to market for them.

Jenny Meutelet

Burgundy girl who studied Wine Business in Bordeaux, Jenny first joined Westbury as an intern. After completing an internship in a Pessac-Léognan estate, working in various services – from sales to marketing and communication to events – she decided to broaden her knowledge and came to London. Jenny has a strong interest in designs and brings her creativity and event organisation skills to the team.
