Boi Tuyen Huynh

One of our female voices for Wine Soundtrack. She has been involved in marketing and communication for over 15 years in consumer goods and information technology companies. She is divided between two loves: one for digital technology and one for wine. Born in Saigon in the summer of 1977, of Chinese origin but with the Amarone flowing in her veins. Citizen of the world, she is comparable to an international wine, as she easily adapts to any latitude and makes wines complete with her discreet and elegant presence.

Andrew Ashurst

Andrew, from Wine Aspects, defines himself as a learner by nature and a teacher by profession. Living in the Penedès wine region near Barcelona made it relatively easy for him to enjoy a glass of wine. However, he didn’t start his journey in the wine industry until 2009 after creating the first of 5 published books, English for Winemakers, a specific wine English course for language learners. He always says that wine is 30% tasting, 30% studying, and 40% talking and listening to professionals in the sector. This view has helped him through several studies in 3 languages, English, Spanish, and Catalan, at institutions like UC Davis, INCAVI, WSET, Outlook Wine, The Wine Scholar Guild, and ESHOB.

Michelle Smith

Michelle was planted in Australia, harvested in England and aged for over 40 years in Italy. She passes what time she has left after painting-the-town (not red, preferring blues in her oils and watercolours!) as a qualified Sommelier and vintage winery guide/ wine educator in the Castelli Romani just outside Rome. A true Frascati DOCG, but with ageing potential of a good Barolo. Oxidising rather nicely, but at least there is no sign of vinegar.
