Every Friday TheChampagneSommelier will ask 5 questions about 5 coeur de bouteilles to friends and Champagne lovers from near and far. This week we had a bubbly chat with Anna Rönngren.
Ex-sommelier, now working as a wine importer in Stockholm. Originally from the deepest forests of Wermland County where you could only get your hands on moon shine. Ended up in the wine business since I didn’t want to work at the local factory and never looked back. I now have a bachelor I hospitality, WSET Diploma and Sake Level 3.
