I love wine and it took me over 10 years to turn my passion into my business and my life

-- --
In doing so I did many roles in the wine industry from working for wineries to running my own wine import company. I am uniquely positioned to advise and create new opportunities with wine and spend much of my time working with clients on their wine businesses, be they a shop, bar, restaurant, hotel or multi-national.

Here’s a few things that might interest you…

The pleasure of taking a restaurant concept from vision to launch and into full operations is such an invigorating and challenging process. I’ve worked with restaurant management to implement design and build, operations, processes, staffing, and sourcing.
