Svetlana Yanushkevich grew up on the southern peninsula of the Ukraine, known as Crimea. Crimea is famous for its 2,000-year-old tradition of winemaking. As a child she learned about wine from her uncle, who worked in Massandra, the imperial winery of Nikolai II, Czar of Russia. Svetlana holds an MS degree in viticulture and a Ph.D. in agriculture and worked as an Associate Professor of viticulture. In 2002, Svetlana relocated to the US, where she completed the London-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust’s (WSET) highest level to become a Diplomat in Wine and Spirits (DWS). After obtaining her WSET diploma, Svetlana managed wine programs at several prestigious Philadelphia restaurants. Svetlana is currently the owner of two award-winning wine shops: The Wine Steward in Hampstead, NH and WineNot Boutique in Nashua, NH.
