Christine Parkinson

Head of Wine


Christine is best known for her work as Group Head of Wine for Hakkasan, although she has also been a Head Chef and worked in Operations. With a focus on improving, she led restaurant teams worldwide to multiple ‘Best Wine List’ awards. She also developed a class-leading sake operation, then set up an in-house no & low drinks research project. Her globally-based team sourced products, recipes and techniques from around the world and developed several new drinks. The resulting ‘Orchard List’ was one of the first significant no/lo offerings by a restaurant group.
