Morrisons has created a new role in its wine buying team

UK retailer Wm Morrison has created the position of wine sourcing manager, recruiting a wine buyer from rival supermarket chain Waitrose to assume the role.

Katie Mollet will be responsible for sourcing wines from Italy, Germany, Bordeaux, Loire, Alsace and Eastern Europe, Morrisons said. She will also have responsibility for sourcing fortified wines.

A spokesperson for the company told just-drinks yesterday (4 September) that Clive Donaldson, the current wine sourcing manager, will remain at Morrisons, with Mollet set to work alongside him.

Mollet will report in to Mark Jarman, head of wine operations at Morrisons.
