I have been working in the service industry since I was 15 years old.
From stocking groceries in the United States, where I lived for 10 years, to being a waitress / hostess at our families restaurant, The Club, where I was always surrounded by wine, due to having our own production under the brand ‘Trinity Canyon Vineyards’ since 2009.
During my studies (2010-2014) for a bachelor Degree of Linguistics, Intercultural Communication and Psychology at Yerevan State Linguistic University after V. Brusov I was offered an opportunity to be a partner in establishing the first specialized wine shop at bar in Yerevan. In Vino was founded on December 30th 2012 and since then wine has become a major part of my life, and is currently the only, wine only, place in Yerevan.
To further my knowledge in wine from 2014-2016 I was one of the first to study in and graduate from the EVN Wine Academy, where I currently teach the Wine Business Module.
On my mother’s side I come from a long liner of painters and sculptors contrary to my father’s side father’s side of doctors and directors, so naturally, I chose something in between art and business – wine.
For us wine is not only a beverage, it’s a relationship with the culture, history, philosophy of the land where it was made.
