Emma Brajkovic’s first introduction to the world of wine, was when she was a child, through the eyes of her parents, who owned and managed a restaurant in Paris specialized in Wines and Champagnes. She was regularly attending wine auctions at l’Hôtel Drouot while her parents purchased famous named bottles for the family gastronomic business. She loved to go down to the cellar with her father, to check the storage conditions of the precious bottles – a special place where time seemed to stay still.
A childhood in Paris, infused by a gastronomic background, followed by the International School of Paris and finally the University College London with a Bachelor in Geology. Having built a successful career in other business fields in Paris (France) and in Mallorca (Spain), Emma had always wine on her mind.
She dedicated a large part of her time to her passion, combining a family, a busy business career and the obtention of her wine certifications: WSET 2 with distinction and her diploma of Spanish Wine Educator with distinction from the American College in Spain affiliated to the Broward College of Florida (USA). Pursuing with a Master in Champagne, as wine knowledge never ends.
Emma’s work as a Wine Communicator, Educator and Wine Buyer shined through with the creation of the Wine Academy Mallorca where she organizes wine events for individuals and companies. She is combining sharing her wine-knowledge in a fun and relaxed manner with a selection of wines or champagnes paired in a five-course menu, specially created for the venue by one of the leading chefs of Mallorca. Emma has a strong belief that wine should not be intimidating and should be open to a wider clientele.

The wine world is vast, and it would be a pity to know only a small portion of it. For Emma wine is a way of traveling, of discovering other cultures, of learning about history, geography, geology, climates, about techniques, as well about meeting and sharing with people and making new friends.
Emma believes that wine-knowledge is the key in arising the client’s comprehension of wines, in general, which then helps them to try new wines and expand their experiences. She finds great satisfaction in seeing her clients buying more than just names and labels, but discovering small independent wineries who produce, through tremendous work, wines with character and originality.
