An Accountant-turned Wine Specialist
I am a wine lover, an amateur chef and an accountant.
As an accountant, I have been trained to evaluate information via supporting evidence, pushing me to find out why I like or dislike a wine. Wine study has also confirmed my belief that some wine knowledge enables people to enjoy wine more. I have attained DipWSET - the highest level (the specialist level) of WSET, awarded with the Wine Australia Prize for the Asia Pacific region.
Now, each time I open a bottle of wine, not only do I enjoy its colour, aromas and flavours, I am also excited about how it expresses its place of origin: the culture, the climate, the soil, the winemaking, and so much more.
I am a wine educator, teaching WSET courses at MWM Wine School by Debra Meiburg and hosting private tasting workshops. I also acted as a Judge at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition 2017.
I am a wine business consultant, advising hotels and restaurants on F&B business strategies, business performance improvements, wine and beverage up-selling skills and wine inventory management; assisting in planning, reviewing, designing wine lists and sourcing wines, and writing wine reviews and marketing brochures, etc. I also host and co-host wine dinners with local Chinese restaurants advising how local foods can be best paired with wines from all around the world.
