François Tran

(Senior Wine Specialist)

François joined The Fine Wine Experience team in April 2015. Prior joining the wine industry, he worked at a Chinese company to develop B2B trade for European kitchenware across Southeast Asian countries. As work did not leave him much time for his wine hobbies, he decided to go into the wine industry to develop his knowledge and passion for wine.
François moved to Hong Kong in 2012. He has spent 5 years in Canada, then completed his Bachelor degrees in International Business and Finance at the American Business School of Paris & Master courses in Chinese Economy at Fudan University in Shanghai. He holds a Level 2 Certificate from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), and currently taking Level 3 WSET courses.
François was born and raised in Paris, France. He grew up in a multicultural environment as he’s half Cambodian, half Chinese. Wine has always been a big part of his French culture. Every meal (excluding breakfast) commonly includes wine. His interest grew after attending series of courses on wine fundamentals at Cordon Bleu in Paris. He then learned further by taking WSET courses as well as exploring different wine with friends. He enjoys learning languages, and can speak fluently French, English, some Cantonese, basic Mandarin, and fluent Chaozhou dialect.
