Samantha Ong, CSW, WSET 3
A former HR professional turned alcoholic, she left her previous job to study wine. For a couple of months, she focused on taking both the Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) and Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). Afterwards, she took a chance and applied for work in Singapore where she landed a job at Fine Wines SG.
For 2 1/2 years, she worked as a sales and marketing assistant for a company that specializes in vintage French wines, specifically Bordeaux and Burgundy wines. During her time there, she was also given the chance to teach introductory classes on French and Italian wines. She helped build the wine community of Fine Wines SG with dedicated wine students who were passionate to keep learning more. She, along with her supervisor, hosted wine tasting dinners, corporate events and private classes.
In 2019, having learned a lot from her boss, supervisors and the team at Fine Wines SG, she decided to move back home to start her own wine company, thus the birth of Wine Therapy PH. She went in strong and landed Grassl glass to became the sole distributor of the brand in the Philippines. Slowly, she has been building up her wine portfolio with wines that she has previously tried and loved.
