“Sometimes you just have to create what you want to be part of”
I founded Social Vignerons to be part of what I couldn’t find anywhere else in a genuine and sincere form: a worldwide community of passionate wine lovers and wine professionals generously sharing their passion, their knowledge, their time, and a good laughter.
The website and social media channels now count with hundreds of thousands of followers, and aim at providing quality content to the community around fun and interesting posts.
As a consultant, I help others create their online story, and be part of the worldwide social media community as their best self. My Online & Social Media Reputation Enhancement Program empowers individuals, as well as organisations and brands around the alcoholic beverage industry to take control of their online presence and start engaging with the community, generating value for all.
“Where did you get this passion for helping others and the wine industry from?”
As a wine expert, wine professional and blogger, this is the question I most often get asked.
The answer is often too long to explain briefly, as it lies in a life-long dedication to wine and sharing.
But there’s a bit of space here, so let’s elaborate on this a little:
Who Am I?
There’s a few aspects to my personality, my experience, my work. Guess the common theme? Wine!
Web & Social Media Expert – Consultant
After a 10-year winemaking career that led me to make high-end wines around the world, I decided in 2009 that my expertise should not only be available to the people physically tasting the wines I’d made, but be spread over to the wider worldwide wine community.
I therefore joined the world leading wine website Wine-Searcher.com and led the development of their online content for 6 years placing it as the uncontested world’s most-visited wine website.
Today, I am making my expertise in online content available through my latest project: the Social Vignerons website, but also through our range of services.
For industry players willing to improve their online and social media strategy, I also provide advice and consultancy through an Online & Social Media Reputation Enhancement Program.
Influencer – Blogger – Wine Critic
Over the years, I have gathered a loyal audience of over 400K passionate and authentic wine, beer, and spirits lovers placing me amongst the Top 20 Wine Influencers around the world.
