Your online tutor is wine professional Georges Meekers who founded Wine Campus and has been delivering wine classes to people around the globe.
In the 1990s Meekers became involved in wine writing and education. He has contributed to international wine trade magazines with vintage reports on Malta and other upcoming wine regions. Georges’s articles have been published in all Maltese newspapers and currently he writes a weeky wine column for The Times of Malta whilst running his personal website.
Georges Meekers is also the author of the “Wines of Malta – The Essential Guide”, the first award-winning reference book on the country’s wine industry. He has been dubbed ‘the voice of Maltese wines’ by his peers and is regarded as an authority on Malta’s new heritage wines. For long he ran winesofmalta.com, which he self-funded and published in support of the Maltese wine industry. His latest wine and photography book “Cleanskin” is yet another collaboration with Malta’s prolific photographer Kevin Casha.
Outside Malta, Meekers is perhaps best known for his role as founder of the Wine School named Wine Campus. Being fluent in several languages, he gets invited as a keynote public speaker at wine trade conferences. As a ‘wine ambassador’ he has accompanied diplomatic missions such as the Maltese MEP delegation to the EU parliament, 2010.
Wine educator, taster and wine professional Georges Meekers has been a passionate advocate for the preservation of what he has dubbed Malta’s G-force: the two ancient coastal native grape varieties Girgentina and Gellewza. He remains professionally engaged in the Maltese wine business at Malta’s leading winery Emmanuel Delicata.
