Mary-Therese Kinsella (Mermaid Mary)

Mary-Therese Kinsella aka Mermaid Mary – Wine Adventures

Irish by birth and Kiwi by pure good luck, Mary always had a keen interest in wine. Moving to the promised land of New Zealand in 2007 however, took this interest to a whole new level. The diverse range of varietals, styles and flavours from this stunning small country at the end of the world blew her mind. There was no going back…

Determined to formalise her wine-ducation Mary went back to school in the form of the internationally recognised Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) and came out the other side qualified and enthusiastic to share the knowledge but equally passionately adverse to wine wank…

Never wanting to be described as an Oenophile, Mary’s true passion is to spread the word of great wines while making wine accessible and encourage wine types to stop using  alienating wine speak that confuses people – like Oenophile. 

Wine is for everyone. Wine is to be savoured, enjoyed and goes best with wonderful company.
