Adam and Myva

We’re a couple of wine lovers, brought to Mendoza by our mutual love of viticulture. We first met at a winery, so I guess you can say wine has a special place in our hearts.  Since 2005, we’ve lived and worked together in Mendoza, and are now raising our family here. Through our years working in the wine industry here, we have been lucky enough to cultivate wonderful friendships with those responsible for making, growing, and serving great wine. We have tried and tested countless winery tours and restaurants, and are constantly on the lookout for hidden gems. Now we want to share all this research with you to give you a more unique perspective on Mendoza and its wineries! Hopefully, by the end of a tour with us, you’ll understand a little better why we both decided to stay here for so long.

Growing up in Washington state with a family of winos from California, wine and skiing have always been part of my life. In fact, these two passions brought me to my now adopted home of Mendoza. I originally came to Mendoza to ski the Andes in 2005. While the skiing was magnificent, it was the wine that truly captured me. I started visiting the wineries and fell in love with Malbec.

I decided to extend my stay in Mendoza, and worked as a wine guide for one of Mendoza’s top agencies. I loved meeting new people, making wine much more accessible, and, of course, just engaging in good conversation. After three years of working for the agency, I decided I wanted to host tours my own way, to make wine tours more unique and fun. I’ve been leading tours with my wife, Myva, for the past 6 years and couldn’t be happier.

Of Argentine-Welsh descent, I was born in Buenos Aires and grew up in the UK, so I always felt connected to both cultures. It’s the Argentine part of me, I think, that drew me towards my love of wine. I first caught the “wine-bug” when I was living in Bordeaux in 2002, and ever since then I’ve worked in the wine industry.

Then, a 3-month trip to Mendoza turned into 8 years of living and working in Mendoza’s fascinating wine industry. After taking numerous wine and viticulture courses, I decided to become an International Sommelier and spent two years studying at the Argentine School of Sommeliers in Mendoza. Today, I am a professor at that same school. I love teaching about wine, so when I’m not training young sommeliers, I’m either hosting tastings or guiding wine tours.
