Georges Meekers

The wine classes at Wine Campus are different. Specialist tutors contribute to the online course material and every student will learn under the tutelage of the school’s founder Georges Meekers.

Meekers became involved in wine writing and education in the 1990s. 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 bi-weekly wine column for The Times of Malta whilst running the journal on this site.

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.

Georges Meekers is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers (UK).

GREAT TUTOR
“Meekers taps into the wine understanding of students; then builds on it with his teachings to lay a solid foundation for them to advance their wine appreciation.”

PASSIONATE AND DRIVEN
“Georges Meekers is the voice of Maltese wines.”

Tony Asplerwine writer - Canada

INVESTIGATIVE
“Malta is a tiny island, with neighbouring Gozo even smaller, and its reputation is equally minuscule, but Georges Meekers sets out to correct this image in a manner which is approachable and informative.”
