Cornelia Becker (Corni)
Cornelia Becker (also called Corni for short) is a wine blogger, passionate about Austrian wineries and wines. She was born in 1978 and lives in Lower Austria with her family. As many other experts, she is convinced that Austrian wines have excellent quality and can definitely compete with the great wines from France, Italy, Spain, and other well-known wine regions. Being an ardent traveller, Corni discovered her passion for wine and decided to take on this new journey.
She started her wine education at the Austrian wine Academy since they offered a gradual step-by-step learning. As for now, Corni is working further on expanding her knowledge of the wine world and has recently passed the certification for Advanced 2 course (Wines and Spirits International) with distinction, which is comparable to WSET3. In spring of 2022, she successfully completed the official tasting examination for wine at the viticulture school and now Corni hopes to be included in a tasting commission.
Corni started her Instagram (@corni.winelover) in 2020 and have been on the wine track ever since. She invites her audience to follow her on the exciting wine journey around her beloved homeland – Austria. Corni is showing wine regions and winegrowers of this beautiful country which makes incredible wine. She loves inspiring people by telling them about Austrian winemaking.
Being a truly versatile person, since Cornelia is also a professional stovefitter, she publishes her wine reviews in the ceramic industry journal (since wine ideally matches with a beautifully tiled romantic fireplace, doesn’t it?). She loves communicating and exchanging with other wine lovers, because this is the way to learn and grow both as the professional and the person.

In her Instagram and Facebook, Corni shares her wine recommendations and winemaker portaits. Events, beautiful phtography, genuine love for the local wines and enthusiam – all this attracts people to her blog. She believes that people should know that Austria has great wines and everyone should have at least one (or better several) bottles of Austrian wine in a home wine cellar!
