UNCORK PORTUGUESE WINES
Since 1997 I have been involved in the world of wine. In 2001 I completed the Course of the Sommelier at the School of Tourism, Estoril and since 2004 I have worked as an independent Sommelier and Wine Educator.
I was born in Sintra where I always return although my work takes me all over the country. I also spend a lot of time at The Wine Flat in Lisbon.
Since 2004 I have been offering a wide selection of wine services in different scenarios for a variety of both business and private clients.
In my free time I enjoy walking holidays throughout Portugal. A stop to eat along these walks inevitably brings discoveries of new wines!
From this desire to share my experience, in 2015 I started the Sommelier’s City Tours. These walks around Lisbon, Cascais and Sintra are aimed at the lovers of food and wine. They lead us to the people and customs, the land and the climate and the colours and taste of Portugal – a universal discovery all in a glass of wine.
In 2017 The Wine Flat came into being. Finally a place to receive all those who are interested and wish to learn more about the world of Portuguese wines.
Already in 2018, I got a very special award - Sommelier of the Year 2017 given by Vinho Grandes Escolhas, a Portuguese wine magazine. It was an honor to me and I was speechless on stage in front 800 people.
To close the year I got the Port Educator Certified given by Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto after a deep week of classes.
Last year I was enthroned by the Confraria do Vinho do Porto.
In the end of the day, I like to say, all my work is about inspiring people to love wine. Do you want to be inspired?
