MY LIGHT BULB MOMENT
It was a very cold morning and I was 12 years old when I stood in a vineyard in Rawsonville with my father and he started to explain to me what is a A-pan and a V-pan that was the moment I knew I was born to work with wine. After working at several wine cellars both local and abroad people thought that that would be my career but I always remained true that my winemaking career molded me into better sommelier
