Julia Bailey: Wine Ninja

“Behind every good result, there is always a great teacher! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and for your amazing lessons”.

I can’t claim that when I was younger I always dreamed of being a wine educator, but as someone who is passionate about wine, I love that I get to talk about and taste it on a daily basis.

So how did I get to where I am now?

I trained as a journalist before I moved into wine education and I now work at one of the UK’s largest importers & distributors of wine & spirits, managing a team of Wine Educators. Within the last year alone we have been awarded the prestigious titles of WSET Wine Educator of the Year and IWC Wine Educator of the Year, as well Launch of the Year for our innovative sake training programmes and materials.

With a WSET Diploma in wine and spirits, and a WSET Level 3 qualification in sake, you might expect this site to be full of pretentious nonsense. But you’d be wrong.

My mission? To make wine accessible to all. So open a bottle, pour a large glass and enjoy the read!
