My name is Effi Tsournava and I have always been very curious about taste and aromas (I made my first fragrance at the age of 5 using lemon and orange tree leaves…), so I studied Chemistry and quickly became a self-confessed winegeek. Born in Greece, but left after completing my Bachelor to explore a whole new wine world in Montpellier, France. There I enrolled at one of the world’s leading wine schools, Montpellier SupAgro from where I eventually earned my M.Sc. in Viticulture and Oenology, spending half a year at the affiliated campus in Geisenheim, Germany. Currently based in London, after 2 years in France and Germany, I still miss my baguette and strudel! However, I am making up for it whilst enjoying great wines and writing about them here!
