Annette Scarfe MW visits Monty Waldin at Itialian Wine Podcast home base to discuss her journey from corporate banking to Master of Wine. At the peak of a successful banking career in Singapore, Annette was asked by her company to pick up and move to South Africa. Instead, she “retired” to follow her passion for wine. Annette describes what she believes are the most important factors shared by successful MWs as well as the biggest pitfalls along the way. Listen in to a conversation that ranges from home wine bottling kits to the many Italian wines finding popularity in Singapore. Warning: this episode contains content that may cause the listener to travel to Singapore to experience “bottomless” brunch culture in person.
