WINE STUDENT: INSPIRED BY LA RIOJA

Lisa, an Eleanor Wine Academy student, WSET Level 2 Award in Wines

“My name is Lisa and I am passionate about learning more about different wines. I lived in Madrid, Spain for almost four years and in that time, I became interested in different wine regions there, and especially La Rioja. When I lived in Madrid, I loved going to small, family owned, hole in the wall places that always had a variety of tasty tapas and excellent wine. 

I’m currently living in the Netherlands and I am teaching English and Spanish here. I’m open for something new career wise and that was one of the reasons I decided to take Level 1 and Level 2 WSET courses. I have enjoyed wine for a long time and now I think that it’s a great experience to learn how to identify different aromas while smelling and tasting wines. I love connecting with people and cultures from all over the world and I think wine is a great way to do this.”
