Antonia’s father was from Jerez where she lived as a child and where she has extensive family to this day. It is these Spanish roots that have fuelled her love of wine from an early age. Jerez, with its historical sherry bodegas and unique wine culture, has greatly influenced Antonia’s passions as an adult. Antonia studied at Trinity College Dublin and has BA honours degrees in both Economics and Law. After 10 years working in the world of banking, investments and commodities, she took a professional leap into the world of wines in 2007 and co-founded Amores Wines in 2010. She has completed the WSET Level 4 Diploma and would like to apply to the Masters of Wine program in the near future. In her spare time, Antonia loves movies, playing the drums and cooking for her family and friends.
