Nika Shevela

My name is Nika and I am a wine consultant and educator, raised and based in Barcelona, but originally from southern Russia, born near the crossroads of cultures that is the Caucasus region. As long as I can remember, I have been really passionate about wine and food from all over the world, Georgia being the country that really introduced me to this ancient and magic drink.  Before making a jump into the wine industry, I worked as a translator and interpreter in tourism for many years and helped co-edit a webzine in current affairs, named The United Explanations.

I am a founder of Wine Alphabet, a company offering consultancy for hospitality and wine export, as well as a wide range of wine experiences. You will find me constantly discovering best wines and spirits from Spain and beyond, and sharing my love for wine through Wine Alphabet events and through teaching WSET and Spanish Wine Scholar courses at Rack and Return school.
