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

"Humanity has never created more bonding product than wine. It is so much more than just alcoholic beverage, it's history, culture, craftsmanship, tradition. Wine is always a reflection of people who make it. 
It is also a perfect icebreaker for any occasion - everyone loves wine! "

After visiting +15 wine regions by far, and making friends with absolutely amazing people from all over the world connected via wine, Margarita is looking forward to sharing her knowledge, passion and findings with the students of the Eleanor Wine Academy.

As Margarita says: "Wine is the answer!" 

Hi, I'm Liseth, your WSET LEVEL 1& level 2 course educator

"I am very excited to take you along a journey in the wonderful world of wine!"

Liseth's interest in wine started a long time ago, when she was 16 years old. A guest at the restaurant she worked at asked her if they had a Beaujolais, and Liseth remembers thinking “What is that, and why does he specifically asks for that wine?” 

In the following years, Liseth broadens her wine knowledge and hands-on experience, working in vineyards around the world: New Zealand, France, Portugal, The Netherlands. She then gains commercial experience working in both wine import and horeca industries, while completing several wine courses. Liseth is now a certified WSET level 1 and level 2 educator, eager to share her wine passion and experience with students.

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.
