I came across the WineFraud.com when researching the proliferation of counterfeit wines, and the vision & philosophy of TCM Authenticator Programme immediately resonated with me. Wine began as a personal pleasure and has very rapidly grown into a career for me, one in which I’ve gained tremendous respect for the spirited producers we work with. At the same time, it gives me immense gratification when my knowledge is pivotal in the consumer’s learning journey about wine, and with this responsibility comes the necessity of understanding our world’s trends, evolution and risks. Through this training I aim to provide producers and consumers alike with an Authenticator’s refined approach to the protection of our passion – wine.
