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!"
