Gregory Michailos

MSc, DipWSET - Tutor of WSPC Wine School

Wine can fill your days with sensations, special moments, and emotions. A wine you once tried and were never able to forget, a viticulturist you met who insists on growing his vines under adverse conditions, a trip you made to a far corner of the earth because of a single bottle of wine. Wine is indeed a beautiful story; it is however not enough…. The more our knowledge of wine grows the more we ought to respect, admire and love the earth that produces it and the people who create it.

Gregory Michailos was born and raised in Athens. He studied at the Department of Chemical Engineering, NTUA. He holds a degree in Harmony and Accordion from the Panarmonion Music School and began his interprofessional studies in wine in 2004. In August 2009 he was amongst the first three graduates of the WSET® Diploma in Greece, earning 4 scholarships for his high performance in the Diploma exams: The Boutaris Winery Scholarships, the Champagne POMMERY/ Halaris Bros S.A. scholarship, Ktima Vivlia Chora Scholarship, Apostolakis Family Winery Scholarship.
He continued his studies at WSPC in Sommellerie, completing the Court of Master Sommelier programme and became a Certified Sommelier in 2015. During the past years he has working as a wine consultant at Mr. Vertigo and since 2009 he has been teaching all educational levels related to wine at WSPC. He collaborates with entities such as “Enterprise Greece”, “Wines of Greece” and regional associations for the promotion of Greek wine in the markets of Korea, Australia and China. He is the co-organizer of “50 Great Greek Wines” and the Peloponnese Wine Festival and Central Wine Fair. He loves to write about wine and to visit wine producing regions around the world.
