Aleesha is a wine writer, wine judge and amateur anthropologist.
Throughout her career Aleesha has been drawn to stories of people and places.
This interest led her to study the NCTJ Diploma, going on to work as a multimedia journalist, before producing TV documentaries.
It was a natural progression when she fell into the wine trade, after many a year as an engaged consumer, that Aleesha quickly became fascinated by the anthropology of wine and the role it plays in culture and society.
Using her journalistic and visual storytelling skills, Aleesha has become a successful wine communicator and freelance wine writer.
Her articles can be found in publications such as Harpers Wine and Spirit, National Geographic Traveller Food, Imbibe, Sarah Abbott MW's Swirl Wine Group blog and WSET's global blog. She is also the wine columnist for Red Magazine. (see - published articles)
Currently the wine expert and presenter on the SheerLuxe show (YouTube) Aleesha has live experience reporting for radio and TV covering topics from the Royal Rota to terrorist attacks. A keen content creator you can soon view her original mini-series across her social channels.
On top of this Aleesha is a keen advocate for representation and diversity matters and uses her platform to discuss these issues.
