Tutor of WSPC Wine & Coffee School
If I had to give a description of my relationship with wine, it would definitely include the phrase "lifestyle". Wine was the reason I found myself in places of the world that I never imagined I would be in and it constituted a common communication code with people of different languages and cultures. Wine taught me that the world can be different but just as beautiful. As a tutor at WSPC, my goal is for our students not only to gain a high level of knowledge about wine, but also to feel part of a global community and to experience the diverse beauty of the world, as I have come to know it and continue to discover.

In 2006 he returned to the hotel industry and the Grande Bretagne Hotel. In 2009 he took on the position of Wine Director for the Grande Bretagne and King George hotels where he remains to this day, creating a collection of wines which for seven consecutive years has been awarded by the Wine Spectator with the Best of Award of Excellence.
