After studying for diplomacy and completing an MBA, she spent the last 12 years managing a publishing house that helps countries develop successful branding campaigns to attract industry-specific investments.
As a true Argentinean, wine has always been on the table for her. Today she is WSET Level 3 Wines & Spirits Certified and is determined to pour her communications, marketing and traveling passion to bring out the wine-lover in you. She is also a Certified Sake Educator from the Sake Sommelier Association.
Turgut Tokgoz has had a distinguished and senior career for nearly 30 years in investment banking and NGO management. His life-long passion for wine led him to attain the WSET Diploma and the CMS Introductory Sommelier and the WSG Rhone Master Level Certificates. He is also a WSET certified wine and spirits educator and is a Certified Sake Educator from the Sake Sommelier Association. He serves as the founding President of the Turkish Society of Wine Experts and Educators.
