Our Qualified Wine Instructors in Amsterdam

Hi, I’m Henrietta, your wset 1 & 2 course educator

I am a WSET 3 certified educator obsessed with the origin of things.
I believe wine is our cultural heritage - we’ve been making wine on this planet for more than 8000 years and were evolving as species while mastering the craft of making wine. Wine history, culture and the indigenous grapes is what keeps pushing me to learn more and give more. This curiosity is what I try to spread to our students.
I do a lot of things around wine. In 2018 I completed my WSET courses while travelling the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions. Since 2019 I’ve been organizing wine tastings and wine tours to exceptional off-the radar wine regions. I settled in the Netherlands and I plan on continuing to work with spreading the passion for wine among the Eleanor Wine Academy Level 1 and Level 2 students.
See you in the classroom!


Federico is an Italian wine enthusiast living in Amsterdam. In 2021 Federico passed his WSET level 3 and he is currently attending the Diploma course. 
Born and bred in Piedmont, the land of Barolo and Barbaresco, he was in contact with wine since his childhood, spending a lot of time in the steep vineyards of Monferrato and Langhe. 
Marketing manager with international experience, he dreams to put his experience at the service of the wine industry. He uses his spare time to visit vineyards across the world and recently started to work on a project which will help to boost wine tourism in Italy.

Hi, I'm Mirjam, your wset level 3 course educator

Hi, I’m Mirjam, your WSET Level 3 course educator. 

Mirjam is an experienced wine professional with a love for wines from Central and Eastern Europe. Discovering wines from these regions and creating a market in Western Europe is one of her passions. 

Mirjam has been consulting in Eastern Europe since 2015. Before that she has done several projects with regards to Gastronomy, Hospitality and Retail. Currently she is involved in the very competitive markets of the Nordics like Norway, Sweden and Finland.  In 2018 Mirjam passed her WSET Diploma course followed by entry into the Master of Wine Programme in the same year. Mirjam is currently a Stage 2 student.   

Mirjam travels extensively within and outside of Europe. Always a focus on wine, wineproduction and local culture. One of the most impressive locations to date was Lebanon. 

Hi, I'm Yvonne, your WSET level 3 Course educator

Yvonne is an experienced wine – and also spirits – professional with a wealth of knowledge under her belt.
The urge to go someplace else to taste and research guided her adventures in the wine world, and she is keen to share her wine stories with her students. 
Yvonne holds the prestigious title of Weinakademiker by the Austrian Wine Academy and WSET Diploma, the highest certification awarded by the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. She passed WSET Advanced Level 3 in 2013 with ‘Distinction’.
In 2020 she became a Certified WSET Wine Educator, apart from being a Certified Madeira Wine Educator and a Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Educator. Alongside teaching at Eleanor Wine Academy, she is a wine and travel writer. Moreover, she judges actively in various international wine and spirit competitions. And also for wine magazines.
She travelled to over 35 countries and has visited winemakers all over Europe, in the USA and South America, besides making her own Riesling wine in Kremstal, Austria. So, I guess you can call her a one-time vigneronne too.
