Who are we?

If you’re wondering where the name Wine Turtle came from, you’re not the first!

Yes, it's unusual but it perfectly describes what we stand for and the approach we take when it comes to wine.

We are a group of people that share a deep passion for wine and everything related to it. We don't take ourselves too seriously and enjoy it at a turtle’s pace because that’s how it should be savoured. 

Anyway, in a nutshell that’s why we are Wine Turtle.

We're by no means sommeliers but we have a reasonable amount of experience tasting a wide range of wines from all over the world.

We would be delighted if you’d be willing to join us on our journey as we discover more and more about wine and share our learnings with you along the way.

Most importantly, our mission is to make wine fun and approachable to all!
