Why we exist
Wine tasting is hugely subjective. The brain creates the taste of wine based on a myriad of inputs and shifting experiential frames... No two people will 'taste' exactly the same thing.
Yet, the way wine is discussed, taught, sold - it's as though an objective truth exists. This creates a barrier: "I love wine but I don't know anything about it".
Inspired by insights from psychology and neuroscience, I aim to create a space to tune into the senses, and put the focus on you and your palate, as much as the wine itself.
I bring this to life through my experiential products, my multi-sensory experiences. My curated selection of wines focuses on independent and organic producers, each with an interesting story to tell. I sell the wines I love to drink myself.
In 2021 I completed the WSET Diploma in Wine with Distinction, graduating amongst the top 2% of graduates globally. I love sharing my passion for wine, helping to empower and inspire people in their exploration and appreciation of wine. I hope you'll join me for a multi-sensory journey through your palate, and your mind!
