Wine & words was founded in 2015 by Kristel Balcaen, MA in Linguistics and Literature, Certified Sommelier from the Flemish Wine Academy, WSET Advanced Certified and Sommelier-Conseil from the Université du Vin in Suze-la-Rousse, France. In 2017, she was named Champagne Ambassador for Belgium, 2018. In the subsequent European finals, she won silver, earning the title of Vice-lauréat du concours des Ambassadeurs du Champagne 2018.

With 20 years of experience in higher education, writing, communication and international cooperation, Kristel has been working with students, clients, partner organisations and businesses worldwide. She writes articles on a wide range of topics and has been a speaker at many international conferences and events.

Her passion for wine and the joys of good food continue to lead her in new directions. She teaches future sommeliers at the Flemish Wine Academy, she is a member of the editorial board of Ken Wijn-magazine, ‘wine mistress’ at Commandery Caudalie and a judge in wine tasting panels, and in her spare time, she writes a book on her absolute favourite topic: wine aromas and the role of herbs and spices in food and wine pairing.
