Exotic Wine Travel

Hi! We are Matthew and Charine. We are authors, writers, speakers, marketers, travelers, and wine geeks.

In 2015, we left Singapore and began our location-independent lifestyle. The transition is summarized in our articles The Start of Something New and Reflection: Long-Term Travel and the Journey to Becoming Location Independent. While traveling through the wine regions in Europe and the Caucasus, we experienced several obstacles during the preparations and actual trips, which compelled us to turn our passion for wine into a creative force for good. The genesis of Exotic Wine Travel is depicted in our article The Story of Exotic Wine Travel after 20 Months on the Road.

Having traveled to more than 50 countries and explored over 50 wine regions, we bring an empathetic and astute ‘prosumer’ lens to the wine tourism industry. We’re also WSET Advanced certified.

You can follow our journey and discoveries on the Exotic Wine Travel website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vivino, and YouTube.
