Julian Brind Passes Away

22 - dec - 10

WJulian Brind Passes Awayaitrose consultant Julian Brind MW has passed away, reports He was 68.

Brind, who died of a heart attack on Sunday 19 December, was an integral part of the Waitrose wine buying team from 1971 until 2010.

He became involved in the wine trade as a management trainee at Brown & Pank, part of Watney Mann Breweries, and moved into buying wine under the guidance of Don Lovell MW. He was awarded the Vintners' Scholarship in 1967.

He passed the Master of Wine exam in 1970, and joined Waitrose in 1971. He played an instrumental role in evolving the wine department for more than 30 years. He continued to work with Waitrose on a consultancy basis even after his retirement.

Waitrose wine buyer Pierpaolo Petrassi MW said, “He will be sadly missed by many both at Waitrose and in the wider drinks industry as an an inspirational figure for the trade, a dedicated colleague, a fearsomely competitive racquet sports player, a wonderful mentor and great personal friend to many.”

Another senior buyer, Nick Room, paid tribute to Brind's “masterly direction” of the Waitrose wine department while “stoutly upholding the John Lewis Partnership's principles of integrity and fair play”.

In a statement Waitrose said, “Julian was a true gentleman and his incredible knowledge of wine combined with superb retail acumen made him a charismatic figure who was respected throughout the industry.”

He is survived by his wife Charlotte, four children and many grandchildren.

The pros of this product are: it's onrgaic, free from additives and any added sugar which is important. They are a convenient size for 1st stage weaning and for when your out and about as they do not require refrigeration. They also come in 2 flavours which is quite handy when providing a varied diet.The cons are they are exceptionally sweet and unfortunately my little boy did not take to them at all. I tasted them as I was surprised being as I use Hipp onrgaic milk and baby rice however it was like tasting a pot of sugar I can only think it is the concentrated apple juice used.I personally would not recommend to friends due to the level of sweetness per potGD Star Ratingloading...

Dear HamishMany thanks for your conmmet. To be fair, I think that many of the major supermarkets, be it Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys or any other of the well known supermarket chains, do quite a good job of promoting wines that people can enjoy at home, at good value prices.There is obviously a market for the value wines, as the supermarkets are very astute and would not offer them if there was no take up. I purchased these value wines not to taste them but to practice decanting and pouring with them, which is part of the competition I am preparing for. But that said one or two of them may well taste better than expected and at little more than a33.00 odd a bottle could offer exceptional value .whatever their reasoning I am pleased to have been able to take advantage of their keen pricing structures as I bought nearly 100 bottles to practice with.Thank you for your good wishes regardiung the World Sommelier Championship- much appreciated.Kind regardsGerard
after I wash my sweet potato I wrap it in tonifil then roast it, after its done I remove it from the foil to let it cool then the next day I stick it in the oven for a little bit to re warm it with out foil then wrap it in foil so I can take to school with me then during lunch I un wrap it and the skin is all wet which makes it really messy to eat any trick on how to keep the skin from getting all wetMark
Hello Nicole I am interested in apinlpyg for one of the graduate schemes. I was looking to apply last year but didn't come across the Schemes until the entry period was closed, so have kept up to date with this website and am pleased to see all the new blogs which have helped me to narrow the graduate schemes down to two. John Lewis Retail or Waitrose Leadership Scheme. i have a degree in Performing Arts but since graduating i have worked for Tesco as a General Assistant and Team Leader. During my time with Tesco they have offered me the graduate scheme. This has given me the impetus to look into the John Lewis Partnership Schemes as I feel the they are better and the programmes better suit me.There are a few things that I am interested in finding out?Firstly where the schemes take place and where I would have to travel or would they be at local stores?Having my experience at Tesco as good background knowledge would you suggest that the Waitrose Leadership Scheme would be better suited or will what I have learned be aplicable to the John Lewis Retail Scheme?Also If there is anything that you think may be useful for me please let me know.

Hi Emily,Thanks for your question.No two days are the same on the Retail Management scemhe but it is a balance between basic shopkeeping and development as a manager. Daily, we are expected to look at staffing, emails, finances and serving customers. However, I also spend a lot of time helping with events, recruitment and taking on responsibilities above my role, when my manager is absent or I can help another department. I maintain a fairly close relationship with the buying office and visual merchandising, so do have some involvement in that side of the business. I am given freedom to exercise my own creativity and judgement in terms of branding and merchandising my section. In terms of how it actually works, you are based in one branch for 6 months, then look at buying, merchandising and finance in London for a month and then move to a second branch for 6 months. In contrast, the Buying scemhe is based in London Victoria and you would sit on different buying directorates under the titles of Homes, EHT or Fashion. Buying is much more about the product and having an eye for new, exciting things that you could bring the Partnership.I have just posted another blog about what I do day-to-day which you can read and Zoe, one of the buying grads has written a series of Day-in-the-life-ofs, the first of which you can find . All the best for your application,Karen
