Everything I do is always about the great taste

taste development specialist
Everything I do is always about the great taste. Whether it's my job as a sommelier, opening new restaurants, or teaching how to feel more and get the most out of this part of life.

At some point, I realized that it brings a lot of inspiration for me and a lot of benefits to other people.
I decided to explore this issue deeper based on modern researches and my ability to combine knowledge from very different fields into a completely new product.

I wish more people could feel the joy of life by eating their breakfast, going to a restaurant or drinking a glass of wine, traveling and discovering new things, spending time with children or friends
My projects
gastronomic cafe "the DREAMERS"
At the moment, I continue to develop restaurant projects in Lisbon. If you are interested in investing in this region or in any other form of partnership, you can contact me.
"The Dreamers" is a gastronomic cafe in the center of St. Petersburg, whose cuisine is based on local products, with a large wine list from small producers and specialty coffee. This project was opened in 2015 and has long become an integral part of St. Petersburg.

project «queue to enter»
“Queue to enter” is the dream of any restaurateur. Now I am in Lisbon and I am going to open a wine bar with a full kitchen. As part of the project I will show every step I take and explain why I do it.

The restaurant business is too much about details. It is impossible to explain all of them in the way of a "standard course about how to open your own restaurant." But the combination of experience and expertise, with real life situations, can give a lot more.
Well, I already have a place with a “queue to enter”, so I know exactly what I'm talking about. I will indicate the difference from the Russian market, so it will be useful for those who are in Russia now, and those who dream of opening something in Europe.

All materials will be in the Telegram channel.
I am a sommelier
I am a sommelier. This is an important part of my life and, in fact, a project where I am constantly learning and improving, creating wine lists, impressions, new experiences, discovering unknown facets of taste, creating unique tastings, and organize training.
My wine list in Dreamers has been recognized by all the largest Russian and world awards in this area: Russian Wine Awards, Wine Spectator, Wine List by Fine wine.

But you should know that I don't work with commercial conventional wines and prefer to work with small ethical wine producers. In this case the amount and cost of work is discussed individually.
