“Hi, my name is Ha. I was born and grew up in the vietnamese countryside but my dreams of something bigger quickly brought me to the young and modern Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, that I now proudly call it home. Passionate about cooking and homemade cuisine, I appreciate all the vibrant flavors Saigon food scene has to offer. However, when it comes to drinks to compliment this unique food, I was not entirely satisfied. This is where wine comes into the picture. Traveling around Europe this last year gave me the opportunity (and excuse) to taste plenty of incredible wines and made me want to discover more about it. I am really grateful for the chance I am given to learn more and develop myself in this field with the Wine Embassy”.
