Nina has been presenting and lecturing in wine since 2001. “I love the opportunity to pass on my vinous passion. I get just as excited about the perfect food and wine matching sessions as I do about the pitfalls or benefits of soil types, climates, alcohol levels or frankly anything else on the spectrum of wine.”
Nina is a Certified Wine Educator and a regular lecturer for The Wines and Sprits Education Trust at their head office in London, presenting the Burgundy Series, the Italian Series and many other masterclasses on the wines of Italy, France, Fine Wine and other parts of the world. Nina’s wealth of experience in wine is helped in part by regular visits to a family home in Italy and her father’s home in Bordeaux where she has the opportunity to assist with wine making at local Chateaux. Nina’s connection with Bordeaux has also assisted with her accreditation as a certified Bordeaux Educator.
“A family home in Italy has given me the opportunity to learn, to love and to appreciate with a passion the wines of Italy. I have an insatiable appetite for this country, its wines, its foods and its culture and I take great pleasure from passing on this knowledge.”
“I have travelled the world extensively to broaden my knowledge. I have visited wine regions in Argentina, California, Canada, South America, Australia and New Zealand along with many of Europe’s top wine spots including Burgundy which has become a major passion.”
“I am hugely excited and enthusiastic about English wine, and when I win the lottery I will start my own vineyard and make world class sparkling wine here on the South Downs!”
Nina’s company, Wine Workshop, provides wine education and consultation for the trade and public. “We offer an enjoyable way to learn more about wine; to inspire, enthuse and encourage your investigations into this glorious subject.” Wine Workshop can also teach you how to look after your wine and to demonstrate in a fun and informal manner how to match wine with food.
