Chair Judge

Ivan Dixon has been judging for the IWSC for over 15 years, now holding the position of chair judge for both wine and spirits.


His career began in independent wine retail before Harvey Nichols brought him down to London from Manchester to work as a buyer. Dixon has since achieved the WSET diploma and headed up spirits and beer buying at Enotria & Coe, where he was responsible for innovation and market leadership.


When not working, travelling or judging, he is likely to be found at the bar, with a martini in hand.
