Emily Harman is the founder of VinaLupa. She currently works on a consultancy basis - curating bespoke wine lists and training for restaurants, bars and hotels. Additionally she oversees and plans wine events. She set up and managed the initial Vault Tastings - a wine trade event promoting small interesting importers.
Emily has 11 years experience in the food and beverage industry, from working at legendary River Cafe to then spending several years in Australia working at the highly awarded fine dining restaurant Attica in Melbourne, which was voted no. 32 in the Worlds 50 Best Restaurants in spring 2014. Her time in Australia led her to work the 2011 vintage with artisan winemaker Tom Shobbrook in The Barossa Valley and then later that year to move to Tuscany to work with Sean O'Callaghan at Riecine in Gaiole in Chianti.
Upon her return to London she worked for Xavier Rousset at 28-50 and Texture before taking the role at The Zetter Group as the Group Wine Buyer & Sommelier. Emily ran the wine lists and wine training for the teams at Bistrot Bruno Loubet and The Zetter Townhouse and oversaw the opening of Grain Store in 2013.
