Hi! My name is Aleksandar Draganić; wine writer, educator and founder of Grape Nomad. Thank you for showing interest in this blog. 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 websites devoted to wine advocacy, Grape Nomad strives to create change in the way we perceive this exquisite beverage, by providing educational media, training resources, and instructional workshops that help individuals learn about wine – in a fun, unfiltered and engaging format. For easier comprehension, the format of these media is based on WSET/CMS standards.
CONTENT COMES FIRST
