Maria's love for wine began when sharing good Falanghina and Greco with friends at university. After graduating in "Chinese studies" she moved from Italy to Beijing and then to London where she started to work in a tea company. After running many tea tastings she decided to get her WSET certifications and live fully the world of wine. Her favourites are big Amarone and Portuguese white wines.



A former BBC Multimedia Producer and a well-travelled tango dancer, Alya reshaped her career in journalism when her accidental wine tasting club started getting more participants than available venues could accommodate. Since then she worked at Berry Bros. & Rudd, Laithwaite’s and WSET, wrote about wine for Forbes and other publications. With MAs in Journalism and Script Writing, Alya shared her opinions as a full IWSC judge, hosted tastings in London, Hong Kong and Seoul and once taught a non-English speaker in China some handy French wine terms. In her spare time, Alya likes nothing more than playing her grand piano and enjoying a glass of Ruinart with a copy of the FT Weekend nearby.
