Emma Mordue

Emma's education began with an interest in food, wine and all things hospitality when she completed a BA Hons in Hospitality Management in the UK.  This interest soon turned into a passion for wine when Emma completed her WSET Level 3 and Diploma.  With thorough wine and hospitality credentials Emma moved to Australia where for 10 years she worked as a successful sommelier in the competitive Sydney restaurant scene.
Her work in restaurants led to an interest in wine at a more grassroots level and she did a vintage with Willow Creek, Mornington Peninsula.
Currently Emma enjoys teaching WSET Level 2 at the Prince Wine Store….and now in the Mornington Peninsula.
