I am a WSET certified wine geek who loves learning, talking and writing about wine. A Post Graduate in History from Delhi University, I also studied Italian at Universita per Stranieri di Perugia, Italy.
I love travelling, exploring different wine regions and trying out new cuisines. My blog High on Wines is about my food and wine trails in India and across the world. I spoke on the "Potential for Wine Tourism in India" at the International Wine Tourism Conference IWINETC 2015 held at Reims, La Champagne, France and also participated in IWINETC 2016 Barcelona Spain. I attended Vinexpo 2015 and 2017 in Bordeaux and the 50th Anniversary of Vinitaly 2016 held in Verona, Italy. I get invited to wine launches, tastings and events related to wine and wine tourism both in India and overseas as I enjoy writing about them. I am a regular contributor to The Luxury Collection Magazine and Sommelier India Wine Magazine.
