Zoi hails from Athens, Greece. Seeing the joy and excitement when people learn how to appreciate and enjoy wine made Zoi starting a career in Wine Education.

The fact that a fruit can transform and deliver so many sensorial experiences amazes me.  I want more people to understand and appreciate this experience, that is why I love bringing more people into this world."

Zoi's favourite wine region and grape? Fascinated by the techniques of oxidation and the complexity it brings in the glass, Zoi is all about Jura and Savagnin these days!
