Valeria Tenison

DipWSET

Valeria Tenison began her professional career as a bartender, working with drinks in general. However, wine always interested her as it allowed her to travel and discover new places without leaving her working place. She was awarded Best Russia’s Female Sommelier in 2018. Valeria passed her WSET Diploma in October 2021 and is now aiming to study for the Master of Wine.

 

 

She is currently a freelance writer for both French and Russian publications. This year, she created a team of three female friends to participate in the Revue du Vin de France blind tasting tournament, where they can train their blind tasting skills regularly.
