WHO IS WINE ROVER?
My name is Cathryn Bell. Originally from Wales, I gained a very useful degree in Swahili and Development Studies before falling into the world of wine in Ireland via a stint in East and South Africa (let's call it "The Long Way Round"). I was very lucky to learn my trade in some of the best establishments in Ireland (Ashford Castle, Chapter One, Aimsir), gaining experience and awards and had a lot of fun along the way!
As a sommelier, I've always loved connecting with people, the relationships, the guiding , the vinous match-making between people and food, and Wine Rover let's me do that on a much bigger scale.
My dog Moose is my inspiration for Rover. He is my loyal shadow and loves going on "jobs", searching, fetching, accompanying - he's there with bells on!
