Sophia Longhi
Imbibe Live Wine Ambassador

Sophia Longhi is an award-winning wine communicator and wine writer. During her time in the wine industry, Sophia has poured wine in various wine bars, orchestrated wine tastings and has hosted wine masterclasses at national theatres, like the Ideal Home Show. In addition to running her blog on her website Sophia has written for Ocado Life magazine, as well as several wine trade publications, such as The Buyer, Academie du Vin Library and Club Oenologique.

In all her work, Sophia seeks to democratise wine and break down the social barriers that get in the way of people enjoying this incredible drink. One could say that she takes wine right back down to its skin and pulp, which is rather apt, as that is the name she goes by on Instagram (@skinandpulp), where she communicates to over 13,000 followers.

Especially passionate about championing women in wine, she hosts a weekly Instagram Live, #WednesdayWineWomen, and is part of an all-women content creation collab called The Wine Collective (@thewinecollectiveuk). As a foursome, they create multi-faceted content for premium wine regions and brands, and have worked with D.O. Rías Baixas, Vins de Provence, Corney & Barrow and the International Wine Challenge.

Sophia has judged for the International Wine and Spirits Competition and was featured as one of Wine GB’s Great British Wine Industry Women of 2021. Last year, she won the inaugural IWSC Emerging Talent in Wine Communication Award.
