I was born in Montevideo, Uruguay. I studied Chemistry and Quality Control and I worked for years in the industrial field. When I discovered the world of wine, thanks to a work of the University, I understood that it was my passion. I studied Sommellerie in Montevideo in 2015 and I continued my studies related to wine in London with the aim of achieving the WSET Diploma.

In March 2016 I started a trip through the wine regions of the world with my husband Raphael. We have visited 25 wine regions of the world and visited more than 80 wineries. We continue traveling because we discovered a lifestyle that makes us happy. I think it is very important to know wine from its roots and this complements my academic training.

In 2015 I started to study Literature in UdelaR, Montevideo, Uruguay.
