  • Escaping since July 2015
  • Favourite wine: Was always a firm white drinker and Chenin Blanc lover but since working at Grape Escapes my horizons have broadened and I have become rather partial to a red, particularly a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo or Pinot Noir

  • Favourite dining experience: Indulging in a 6 course gala dinner at Michelin starred MET restaurant in Venice on my Minimoon!
