Sophie JumpAfter 8 years in the British Diplomatic Service I succumbed to my lifelong ambition of making a living out of what I love the most; wine. I completed the OIV International Diploma in Wine Management, Economy and Marketing before joining the founding team of online wine merchant, ChateauOnline.  Then, following a spell as Commercial and Marketing Director with Seguin Moreau, I launched my own Strategic Sales and Marketing company, Jump Start. Today, I also run my own wine events company, Planet Thirst and have a part-time role as CEO of the International Wine Clubs Association, a trade association of direct wine sales specialists.
I speak fluent French and Spanish.

  • Design and implementation in-market of commercial and marketing strategies
  • Specialist translation services (French and Spanish into English)
  • Events and conference organisation
  • Press and public relations
  • Brand development and management
