Let's Get To Know

Pinar Akkaya

Every bottle has a story.


With an advanced degree from the world's most renowned wine education school WSET London, Pinar Akkaya combines her extensive corporate experience with her long time passion on wines. Currently working as a cross cultural communication expert and international facilitator, Pinar offers unforgettable wine training sessions under her exclusive brand, Juliette Wine. She also has a wine podcast in Turkish, Juliette’in Kadehi, where she tells wine stories from around the world.  


Wine and good food were my passion from a young age onwards. I remember saving my pocket money in high school to have a perfect gastronomic meal once a week and enjoying every single moment of it. 


Since then, I am an avid reader of everything on food, restaurants and wines and an adventurer on my food journey. Funny enough, I never thought of opening a restaurant myself!


However, following a good chef, finding a good bottle and enjoying a good meal always remained at the top of my list wherever I go.


My professional journey on wines go back to 2016, when I took a seat for my first wine class at WSET and it still continues, now getting ready for WSET Diploma level, getting more enjoyable and certainly more sophisticated. 


With every step I make, I discover that the world of wine is huge and there is an amazing lot to learn. With every sip I take, I become more humble before the magnificence of the mother nature.


My brand “Juliette” allows me to transform my passion on wines into an amazing professional journey where I build bridges with other wine enthusiasts and learn even more.
