About me

I am sommelier


Many years ago I have been captivated by the fascinating world of sommelier. Everything I do I do to deepen my knowledge. I explore the secrets of wine, meals, delicatessen, cigars, coffee, tea, distillates and other drinks. I have been always sure about the decision to become a sommelier. It is an endless varied path that keeps suprising me again and again.  

For me there is never enough of wine tastes. The number of connections of wine and food is almost endless. I always get excited about energy and character of young wines as well as noble elegance of old wines. I love exploring and trying new varieties, new wines and new experiences. I love to be enchanted by exploring original sophisticated wine, a real treasure that sparkles by its story. The story about history, homeland, sun, winemaker and his love and care about the magic drink.
