I am a journalist in equestrian and wine, and a sommelier WSET Level 3.
I work part-time in a wine bar in Stockholm to keep in touch with reality and what's going on. I also organize tastings and do some consulting work.
I've done seven full harvests in France and have pruned and done green harvests in Italy. As a writer and sommelier, this helps me to understand and explain what wine really is.
For wine, my passion has always been on the natural side and putting wine in a context. This is where my interest in PIWI comes in – these grapes are the future. They are kind to the environment, economical, and interesting for the drinker; they deliver new flavors in an ever-changing world. Here in Sweden, they are an obvious part of viticulture.
I will help the local chapter for Sweden to promote the PIWI grapes, compile and present news and spread what's going on; be the spider in the web to connect experiences and organize gatherings in the future.
