My ‘fall’ into wine happened at the foothills of the Andes in Mendoza, Argentina. It was a pivotal moment in my life where I realised that wine was more than a drink: that it could tell a story and help me live my own story, my life, in a more pleasurable and tranquil way. I started to focus more on enjoying wine and food, enjoying the moment, and travelling the world to explore different wines, cultures and meeting people.
I have a WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Level 3 Award in Wine and Spirits, a PhD in Psychology, and a Graduate Certificate in Writing. My varied experience has resulted in a wine and travel blog with a strong human component that pays tribute to the beauty we can see from the vineyard to the cellar door to sipping Barolo over a long Sunday lunch.
I am currently based in Queensland, Australia, but I’m an avid traveller. While at home in Queensland, I work as a psychology lecturer and enjoy cooking recipes from the places I have travelled to and sharing wines I’ve discovered with my family and friends. I am also writing a travel memoir about my travel to many of the world’s great wine regions.
