Ever since I was young, my life has been centered around wine production. I grew up in South Africa in Paarl, which is a stunning winemaking town in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Growing up next to a vineyard, my brother and I used to climb over the fence as kids and help ourselves to the clusters of ripe Chenin Blanc grapes.
Growing up, my wine adventure went from stealing grapes to working all around the world as a sommelier. My love of wine has taken me to working in places like the highlands of Scotland, The Covent Garden Hotel in London, and the Yachts of Seabourn, where I worked as the head sommelier. Eventually, I found myself working for the wineries of Mendoza in Argentina, where I fell in love with South America and its unique varietals. Soon after, I went on to taste the wines of Uruguay, and was delighted by the charming boutique vineyards and the tannat grapes. After experiencing the wonderful wines of Uruguay, I decided to start hosting tours here, to show wine enthusiasts and travelers alike, that while small, Uruguay is truly an underrated and magnificent wine producing region.
I have a passion for wines, without a doubt. However, this extends beyond just tasting them; wine for me has been my way to truly experience life. As a job, working in the industry has taken me all over the world, and it has given me a window into many interesting cultures and traditions. I owe many of my most memorable experiences to the tourism and wine industry, and so in turn I have a passion for providing visitors with these sort of memories as well. I hope that everyone I meet who visits my adopted home, leaves feeling like they fully experienced the beauty of the country.
Working and living on the coast has made me love the ocean. I even had the chance to work as a sommelier on a yacht. I would love to explore the sea even more and take a sailing trip around the Caribbean or Mediterranean with my closest friends and family. Together we would relax, talk about life, and stop at all the beautiful islands. Naturally, we would have plenty of wine on board as well.
