George is the Wine Specialist at Blackbeard’s Grand Harbour Store, and custodian of our 1,000 square-foot dedicated wine room, which houses one of the largest selections of wine on island. George is passionate about wine and would love to share this with you at the popular bi-monthly in-store wine tastings. George studied ‘Tourism and Food and Beverage Service’ in Romania specializing in bartending and mixology. Once he had completed his studies he worked for some of the top restaurants in Romania where he discovered his passion for wine. He arrived on island in 2010 and since has worked bartending and managing several of the most popular restaurants on island. His passion for wine led him to further his education and complete his WSET level two and just recently his WSET level three. There is nothing he loves more than passing his knowledge onto others and he has become known for his ability to understand your wine preferences and to guide you to a variety of options, in a friendly open manner. Please join him to share in this knowledge anytime, especially at the wine tasting evenings every first and third Wednesday of the month.
Rebecca’s passion for wine started in 2009 when she had the chance to do a sommelier course in Koblenz, Germany. Although she kept this interest as a hobby for years, it eventually became a career choice. She successfully completed the WSET level 3 in 2016 and is currently finishing the WSET level 4. Rebecca has years of experience in the hospitality industry and has also worked as an account manager for a South American wine specialist company in London.
