Passionate about wine making and the incredible range of wines from the vineyard regions of France, Italy, Germany and beyond, I developed an interest in wine and the cultural history surrounding it very early on. During years of investigating the French wine regions, I developed a network of wineries and winemakers whose regions and wines I got to know well: Champagne, the Loire Valley, the Rhone valley, Provence and Savoie were my training grounds. Almost 10 years later, after having traversed these regions several times (and in some cases many, many times) to discover the wines and the terroirs of each, and many courses in wine tasting and basic oenological principles behind me, I validated the knowledge I had accumulated over these many years through the WSET level 3 (“Advanced”) exam. I now provide export services to wineries in several wine regions of France, and wines to clients in mainland China; I teach WSET classes regularly, and provide a wide range of wine-tasting classes in Paris and elsewhere.
