A Dutch sommelier shows you the wonders of Valencia
___________________Johan de Smedt, vinologist
He has been living in Valencia since 2008, and has visited most of the wineries in the region. He did his sommelier/vinologist training at the Consejo Regulador (the wine authorities) of Valencia, which has given him a good understanding of wine, its production, wine defects and the essence of wine tasting. Johan is specialised in Valencian wines, but also knows about wines of other Spanish regions.
Whenever needed, he has access to a pool of colleague sommeliers/vinologists, many originally from other parts of the world but now based in Valencia, and united by their passion for good wine. Between them they speak Dutch, Spanish, English, French, German, and Japanese and are thus able to provide services to customers from a large part of the world. Most of them work in one way or another on a daily basis with wine: in their own restaurant, in wineries, wine tourism, or as sommelier. And of course, they never stop tasting new, and old, wines!
