Jobs: Hotel Sales Team Leader & Sommelier, Scott & Co ltd Mauritius
I love this about my profession: It is an infinite adventure of discoveries and learning in every single drop of every single bottle of wine.
My most important experience was: participating in my first contest, which has really changed my way of learning and working in my job, and seeing things from different angles.
I get so much joy from: tasting and discovering new wines and being able to transmit this to my customers with the same passion and enjoyment.
This inspired me to become a sommelier: I have always enjoyed working in high-end restaurants, being myself a great food lover. When I learned that wine was a part of my job, I was really curious about it. So when the opportunity to become a sommelier came, I did not have to think twice.
This is important to me with my team: Being trustworthy.
