Maddie Walkden

Born in London, I originally trained as a chef at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, where I also undertook my WSET Level 1 and 2. Here I found a love of wine which I brought with me to Jersey. After working in kitchens and running a restaurant for a couple of years I decided to study for my WSET Level 3 which I passed with Distinction. Delving further into the wine world has encouraged me to pursue a career in wine, and where better than with the team at Dunell’s!

I’m a sucker for a Jam doughnut and foie gras. Not together mind…
