Maria Cascon Gastelumendi

Export consulting

Wine tasting & presentation meetings

I  was born in Peru where I spent my childhood and I am a spanish national. At the age of 14 I moved to Barcelona and I kept unforgettable memories of Peru, its culture and traditions. After living for 11 years in the contemporaneous city of Barcelona, where I studied tourism and I had first-hand experience in the spanish market and I have been able to improve my catalan.
In 2002, I moved to Ireland where I worked in tourism industry and I could improve my english.
In early 2005, I arrived in Nantes and graduated with an international trade degree confirming my interest in interpreneurship, interculturalism and working internationally.
In 2007,  I created a company called Soles de Mavi “Suns of Mavi” specialized in organic products for children. This experience allowed me to analyse the conduct of local shops and the household consumption in Nantes region. I also decided to participate in a training program in sustainable development at the University of Nantes.
In 2010, through the Chamber of Agriculture, I discovered the world of vine growing and made my trade and passion. 
I took a job with a winemaker in Nantes region in the appelation “Muscadet Sèvre & Maine” as an export manager where I extended the market to Canada, Japan, USA, United Kingdom, Belgium, Ireland, Poland and Spain. I travelled many times in several countries where I discovered the taste and aromas of wine and wine consumption from one country to another.
 
I joined a wine tasting club in Vertou and I am specialized in wine and spirits at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in Paris. Level I, II and III (in progress).
 
Nowadays, after 4 years working as a freelance consultant with “Les Vins de Maria” I have started “International Terroir and  I offer you wine and spirits presentations, help you find a partner and provides you business solutions and global marketing.
