Garech Byrne


 Garech Byrne

Having studied French and Italian at university Garech, somewhat perversely, spent the first 5 years of his career in the wine trade marketing and selling South African wine.

He then joined Alliance Wine as part of the Agency team, looking after our ever-growing band of independent retailers and wholesales the length and breadth of the country and familiarising himself with the nation's motorways in the process!

His interest in the buying side of the business was sparked and in 2010, he made the switch from sales in to buying and has never looked back. Garech now manages Alliance Wine's portfolios in Austria, italy, Spain, South Africa, Portugal, Romania, Lebanon and Germany as well as being involved in our 'Made by Alliance' projects in Spain and Italy.

When not travelling Europe and beyond visiting producers, or explaning the pronunciation of his obscure name, he can often be found fruitlessly trying to remove cat hair from his clothes or indulging in his passion for cooking, eating and drinking - although not necessarily in that order.

Garech lives in London with Sarah, Fin and two very hairy cats.
