About Our Founder

Lisa Hough - The Wine Curator FounderLisa Hough, wine aficionado and co-founder of the The Wine Curator, has spent her life dedicated to creating, sharing and engaging people in delicious and enlightening experiences.  After discovering her passion for food early on, she trained as a French chef and became a cook for life.  Her focus on wine originated with husband (and co-founder) Evan’s job in a wine bar following University.  As career diplomats for 10 years, they traveled the globe, valuing immersion and the pursuit of special and unique experiences.  Outside of work, this meant food and wine mostly…and adventures!

Posted to Cape Town, South Africa, Lisa and Evan set about discovering this little known world wine region, and shortly thereafter Lisa founded Cape Wineland Tours, a company specialised in wine touring for international travellers. She spent the next decade on a mission to introduce ‘serious’ wine enthusiasts to this delectable wine region, expertly building relationships with winemakers and locals alike.

The Wine Curator is Lisa’s latest venture offering exceptional experiences for the curious wine enthusiast or intrepid traveller to discover the gastronomic delights of Australia. While Lisa has had many roles in business, consulting, and people services, it’s her passion for ‘discovering beauty through the palate that inspires the programs and services of The Wine Curator, a true labour of love.
