Judith is a sommelier expert in Wine Tourism. She is a communicator and professor of Chilean wine giving classes to Chilean and foreign students with her own teaching methodology called: “̈Sensorial Wine Workshop ̈ with the goal to show the art of pairing wine in a different way.
Judith clearly remembers when her “Daddy” always gave her a little taste of wine from his glass. She says that “without a doubt, he taught me to appreciate wine and that’s why I love it so much today”.
At the moment Judith’s mission is to bring people closer to enjoy wine by helping them better understand their sense of smell and connect it with the taste when pairing food with wine. She teaches this in her intense course “Sensorial Wine Workshop.”
