Life is better with bubbles.
in 2008, Curly spent 5 days in Tasmania as part of her Vintners Bursary Prize, awarded for her Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 3 results. Those 5 days changed the trajectory of her life forever.
From the mid-’90’s, Curly worked in high-end hospitality and wine retail in the UK, until that fateful journey to Tasmania. By 2010, she had finished her WSET Diploma and set her sights on a return to Tassie.
Since her return, Curly is still a tall woman in a very short gold dress with skin the colour of chocolate souffle but she now teaches the WSET qualifications in Tasmania, is a sparkling wine tragic, a wine writer for The Wine Front, a passionate advocate for childhood food, culture and nutrition education and enthusiastic ambassador for local food, drinks and farming across Tasmania.
