The Team

Joanie Métivier, that’s me!

I’m completely crazy about wine and have the ambitious goal to learn as much as possible about the amazing world of wine, old and new. I have some sort of wine formation, WSET level 3, CMS and Whisky Ambassador as well as other subject such as tourism, geography and translation. I do intend to get more things into  my brain for my reader’s benefit and mine. This is my passionate journey and you may join me.

I’m sharing my wine adventures and discoveries with wine lovers around the world because wine is for sharing and caring. This adventure will be expressed with wine bottles, travel to the magnificent wine regions of the world, wine & spirits events, amazing people and of course lots of joy and happiness.
