The story began when Isabell and Qing Ge Ge, two very linguistically talented expats started working together at an international media company. Qing Ge Ge is from China and Isabell is from Canada; both have a passion for people and hard work!
Qing Ge Ge graduated in in Viticulture & Enology Engineering from the Northwest Agronomy & Forestry University, China, Asia’s foremost College of Enology. She went on to gain a European M.Sc. in Viticulture and Enology, studying in both France & Italy. She began her wine career by making wines both in Bordeaux and California. After extensive travel, she settled in Northern Italy, earning her WSET level 2 (pass with distinction) and WSET level 3 (pass with merit). She is currently a WSET level 4 candidate; still hungry for wine knowledge, her motto is “living my wine life to the fullest.” Her hobbies include going to the gym, spending time outdoors in nature, hiking and of course her passions; food & wine.
Isabell is a professional writer and editor – writing is fundamental to her happiness. She has a Bachelor’s degree & Masters in Classics from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Her post university years were spent trekking around South America and thereafter, working in law firms in Toronto, Canada. She is an introvert and takes satisfaction from a job well done. Her hobbies include forest hiking, ancient history, food & wine, art and architecture. She has travelled all over the globe and speaks, English, German, Italian, French and Spanish.
Isabell是职业作家和编辑 – 写作是她快乐的源泉。她从加拿大金斯顿女王大学获得其学士和硕士学位。毕业后她在南美洲游历、在多伦多的律师事务所工作。她自称内向、她享受把工作做到极致的美好。她的爱好包括在森林里远足、美食与葡萄酒、艺术和建筑。她的足迹遍布世界各地。她掌握英语、德语、意大利语、法语和西班牙语5种语言。
