Winevox works with a team of trainers and translators specialized in wine.
They are all native speakers: English, German, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese or Dutch…a loyal team who have been assisting Winevox for several years.
I am your main contact and Director of Winevox.
After five years working for a professional training organisation followed by a further five years with a major Bordeaux wine merchant, I have solid knowledge and experience of both the wine trade and education. My role is to guarantee that the services we deliver are of irreproachable quality. Thanks to a highly qualified team, this can be achieved.
I am also the Bordeaux correspondent for Indian wine blog Between the Wines sharing my passion for French wines and in particular Bordeaux.
