Isabelle Lesschaeve, PhD

Principal, InnoVinum Academy and Lead instructor

Hi, I'm Isabelle.

the Founder and Principal of InnoVinum Academy, an online education platform created to demystify wine-tasting rituals.

I teach and coach serious wine lovers worldwide to sharpen their tasting skills using a sensory science framework.

I earned my Ph.D. in Sensory Science from the University of Burgundy, France, and have worked in the wine industry for over 20 years. 

Interesting fact

I was born and raised in Champagne, which has certainly defined my passion for sparkling wine and the wine culture.

Fun fact

My grandmother, Pauline, put one drop of Champagne on my lips when I was 6 months old. This event was certainly the determining event that propelled my career as a wine sensory scientist.
