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 Tatler, National Geographic Traveller Food, Decanter, Club Oenologique, Ocadolife, 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)
An experienced broadcaster, having reported for radio and TV covering topics from the Royal Rota to terrorist attacks, Aleesha often pops up on BBC Radio 4 discussing all things wine and has presented wine segments on SheerLuxe TV.
