Hi! My name is Aleksandar Draganić; wine writer, educator and founder of Grape Nomad. Thank you for showing interest to work with me. Being in the wine & spirits industry for 10 years, I have seen many trends come and go, but only one has truly stuck throughout – the need for education. Upon figuring out that being a translator was not the true path for me, I rapidly kicked off my career in Bosnia’s renowned distribution company Divina. With the creative freedom I had there, I created Taste & Learn, the first wine school in the country committed to the training of both professionals and more casual wine consumers. I’ve worked in three different countries (currently based in Singapore) in all spheres of the industry, from farm to table, and have tutored hundreds of students along the way. The mission has always been to inspire, not evaluate wine.
In the sea of strict and humdrum services devoted to wine advocacy, Grape Nomad strives to create change in the way we perceive this exquisite beverage, by providing educational media, training resources, instructional workshops and consulting services that help individuals and companies learn about wine – in a fun, unfiltered and engaging format. For easier comprehension, the format of these media is based on WSET/CMS standards.
– Industry guidance, workshops, masterclasses or private/corporate/public wine tasting events – Tutoring focused on writing/tasting techniques for WSET students and non-academic wine consumers – Original wine or travel related articles for your website or publication – Creating wine lists and/or staff trainings for your restaurant, bar or shop – Regional judging – Press trips, speaking engagements or initial research for a wine region/country – Wine buying and food pairing advice – Managing your social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest – Tasting notes and product reviews
