I originally hail from Sweden but moved to France in 2007 to pursue a passion for wine and studied wine marketing at the INSEEC school in Bordeaux (www.wine-institute.com). After having spent several years working as a sommelier, in wine retail and on the marketing side in both France and the UK, I decided that the best way to share my passion for wine was to talk about it to others! That is how A Glass and a Bottle was born. Weird name? Not really. If you think about it, thats is all you need to enjoy wine. A glass, a bottle - and hopefully some people to share the experience with!
I have an MBA in "Wine Marketing and Management" from the INSEEC Bordeaux, as well as the level 4 (Diploma) from the London-based Wine and Spirits Education Trust, the WSET. As a "WSET Certified Educator" I am also able to teach all the WSET qualifications 1-3. (www.wset.co.uk) In order to constantly improve my skills and knowledge, I embarked in September 2017 on the journey of hopefully becoming a Master of Wine, through the Institute of Masters of Wine in London, UK. A title that is currently held by only 369 people in the world. (www.mastersofwine.org)
In my spare time I like to spend time with my wife and my cat, train with kettlebells and drink as many obscure wines that I can get my hands on. I also judge in one of the largest wine competitions in the world, the International Wine Challenge every year. (http://www.internationalwinechallenge.com)
