Amaia Soto Ortega

DipWSET

Amaia has more than 11 years of experience working internationally in wine marketing, sales, and business management, spanning across Colombia, China, and Spain. Her work was linked to creative strategy, and in 2014 her desire to continue learning took her to China, where she has been working for 4 years in the wine sector.

 

 

At the beginning of 2019, she returned to Spain for a new challenge: to be able to gain experience in a winery and contribute her knowledge to a century-old company eager to change its course. She recognizes that when she decided to redirect her career towards the world of wine, she did not know that she would end up specializing, making it her job and also her main hobby. 


 

As a marketing specialist and a wine geek, Amaia considers herself a very lucky person who has found her passion in life and has the opportunity to turn it into her career. She is a dedicated wine aficionado, achieving the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines and Spirits at the beginning of 2020.
