High Five Highlights:

  • What fueled your passion for wine and when did you know you wanted to make wine your career? A food pairing lunch when I was in investment banking blew me away. I thought, someone back there didn’t just throw this together, they made a conscious decision. That was it and I never looked back.
  • In general, how can we get more enjoyment out of wine? By being experimental. Try going to a wine tasting or hold a wine party.
  • What question do you get asked the most? Are you a sommelier? I am not. A sommelier works in a restaurant, which I do not.  
  • When you were awarded the qualification of Master of Wine, what did you celebrate with that night? I was notified at 6am in the morning and I couldn’t even call anybody, so I had tea actually. Champagne later.  
  • "Finish this sentence: “Throughout my life the most important thing I’ve learned is...” Love covers everyone’s faults, have empathy.
