Nicole GowNewcastle, Australia
Wine Selectors Tasting Panellist and Wine Show Judge
Nicole’s wine career began in 1997 in New York where she helped set up and establish the Australian Wine Bureau. Her first official wine training was held at the famed Windows of the World dining room on the 107th floor of the World Trade Centre and closer to home completed the WSET intermediate course.
Nicole has broad wine industry experience from working for a family run winery in business development through to her current role as Senior Buyer for all things Hunter Valley, and beyond, at Wine Selectors where she has worked for 12 years.
She is also an active associate wine show judge, judging at regional and capital city wine shows across Australia.
A social butterfly, Nicole’s creative flair shines as the chair of Wine Selectors’ party committee where she’s well known for her love of shoes and a good fancy dress costume.
