WELCOME

Interested in wine but don't know where to start? Let my wine courses & tastings empower you to sip, serve, pair and simply enjoy wine with confidence!

It was my enthusiasm for wine and food that led to a career of over 18 years in the hospitality industry, during which I completed my wine qualifications with the globally accredited Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). I qualified as a WSET Certified Wine Educator in 2018 and founded Unicorn & The Vine to teach both private and public WSET wine courses as well as host wine tasting events.

 

Having worked in hotel management, operations management and corporate events, my experience covers training and inspiring teams, creating on trend wine lists, working with head chefs on wine and food pairings and running private wine tastings and dinners.
 

My wine courses are for those who want to learn about wine for pleasure or make a career in the hospitality industry. In addition to my WSET wine courses, bespoke wine courses for hospitality groups, corporates or enthusiasts can be arranged.

 

Just like Unicorns, wine is magical with vines (and unicorns) being sighted, illustrated and written about since medieval times. It's much more than what's in the glass; wine is about people, cultures, nature, travel... I believe it should be accessible and fun and I love to share my passion, empowering others to sip, serve, pair and simply enjoy wine with confidence!
