The Editor

Hi, I’m Nessa and I have been interested in wine ever since I worked picking grapes in Australia while on a working holiday after university over two decades ago.

I went on my first wine tour a few years later in Chianti in Italy. It was as enchanting and romantic as it sounds; however, I spent the rest of my trip travelling all around Italy with bottles of Chianti rattling around in (and weighing down) my backpack!

It wasn’t long before I started studying wine, and I am now WSET Level 3 Certified with Merit.

WSET is the acronym for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Their wine courses are globally recognised qualifications.

The WSET Level 3 Award in Wines is “An advanced level qualification for professionals working in the wine industry,” according to the WSET website.

I also have over 15 years’ experience as an editor.

During that time, I’ve worked editing all kinds of content from editing Lifestyle content for a national news website to editing educational and technical content for multinationals.

I invite you to join me as I continue to appreciate and learn more about wine.
