My name is Seyma Bas and I am a wine trade professional giving consultancy in creating powerful brands and placing them at international sales channels via my company wine•art! (www.wine-art.co) I was raised in an amazing city Istanbul and lived in various countries like USA, France, Italy, and travelled many other continents. I hold a degree in Chemical Engineering from Boğaziçi University and completed my MBA with an emphasis on Luxury Brand Management at Inseec Business School in Bordeaux. I also hold the WSET diploma and am proud to be a Master of Wine Student which provides me extensive skills in tasting and an in-depth knowledge in winemaking, viticulture and international wine business.
I meet a lot of new interesting people due to my job, and while working, I believe in the power of diversity, innovation and co-creation.
Well, of course it’s not all about wine! I love dancing lindy hop, listening to Billie Holiday, watching Wim Wenders movies and nowadays reading about the endless world of coffee. I am specifically interested in climate change and developing envorinmental sustainability in the wine world.
