Mike’s bio:

Mike Mazey is a former Winemaker from Australia and the lead-author of the textbook:
WineWords – English for Wine Professionals and Wine Lovers.
He specializes in teaching Wine English to wine professionals, in the form of workshops, courses and lessons. The aim of this training is to help non-native speakers of English to communicate about their wines in professional settings, such as wine tastings, vineyard and cellar tours, at trade fairs and through written communication.

He is currently working on expanding the Wine English workshops and courses he runs to other neighbouring countries in Central Europe and hopes to establish this in cooperation with the approved service providers of the WSET and other wine education institutions.
