I first fell in love with wine in 2012 when working in one of Manchester's fine dining restaurants, the wine list was vast and the sommelier so passionate. At that moment, I did not think I could ever be as knowledgable as she was but I thank her to this day for nurturing that interest and believing in me endlessly.
I later went to build my career in hospitality management but I knew my passion lied more directly with wine.
In 2017 I embarked on a journey of research and study which brings me to the present day.
In December 2020, delayed by coronavirus, I finally received the qualification I had been working so hard towards; WSET Level 3 in Wine, Pass with Merit. This is the one worldwide awarding body for wine education and a qualification the former sommelier I worked with had achieved.
But this is not where the story ends, my future plans are to invest in a horse box conversion, once again bringing the wine to you. And so The Wine Wagon was born.
I am looking forward to the adventure and taking you all on the ride!
