About Us

Who We Are?

Winerist is a UK-based website dedicated to bringing the best travel experiences to wine and food enthusiasts worldwide. With Winerist we want you to see that wine travel is not solely about rushed wine tours and exhausting packed schedules. We give you the opportunity to handpick your stay, your tour, your experience in any wine region globally, based on our strong belief that travel has to be authentic, original and unique.

Our site features a variety of wine hotels, winerieswine tours and special offers, as well as experiences such as cooking classes, winemaking courses, horseback riding and many more. From wine hotels in Puglia and making the perfect steak in Argentina (paired with what is the perfect Malbec!) to staying with wine makers in California and discovering the best trekking routes in Australia, we want you to have the most authentic experience in any wine region around the world. With more than 50 regions to choose from, we hope you enjoy the Winerist experience, just as much as our local wine experts and regional guides enjoyed putting these locations together and rating them for you.

Why Choose Winerist?

Winerist is a travel guide to winemaking regions globally and free online booking service rather than a tour operator. Our scope is to avoid the old route of complicated and dense packaged holidays. The nature of our service is to grant independent and authentic advice based on our close interaction with local experts, wine guides, connoisseurs and a community of wine lovers who visit, rate and assess all of our destinations and experiences before we offer them to you. Most importantly, we give our customers the opportunity to review our locations too. Please contact us to share your thoughts on your Winerist experience, to recommend a new partner or the wine regions would you would like to see on Winerist next!

It's All in the Name

We tried to combine our two greatest passions, wine and travel, into one easy word to remember. Easier said than done. So after a bottle or two of wine and a long brainstorming session, Winerist was born!

Winerist [noun]


  • a wine travel encyclopedia, with all things wine and tourist;
  • a collection of hand-picked places to stay, unique wineries and the best tours to be found in a wine region;
  • an individual who enjoys wine, travel and unforgettable experiences. A Winerist enjoys special wine tastings, stays in locations that will enable him/her to learn something new about the heritage, the food and, most of all, the wine of a certain region. A Winerist is just the kind of person who you would invite over for dinner or who you would have the perfect glass of wine with!


Winerist was created by two friends, Tatiana Livesey and Diana Isac, both passionate wine, food and travel lovers. We know each other from school in Moldova, a small wine producing country and where our grandparents used to make wine. After spending several years working for financial institutions in London, we decided it was time to follow our hearts and start up Winerist, a website that will change the way tourists book wine & food holidays. Tatiana & Diana are the Moldova regional experts offering insights on the country's wines and culture.
