Isabelle Lesschaeve

I am a wine sensory scientist with more than 25 years of experience in training enthusiasts like you to taste wine consistently. I actually wrote my doctoral thesis on ways to improve tasters' performances when describing food and beverages.

I love teaching and coaching people. It is so rewarding to see the transformation wine tasters go through after this course. They go from being hesitant and unsecured to confident, curious, and so engaged to sharpen their tasting skills continuously. I look forward to helping you achieve the same transformation.
