Petra Peres


When I was in school, I had the impression that the natural sciences were just not for me. I carried this belief around with me for a long time. That was until I started to get interested in wine growing. And what do you know: chemistry? process engineering? No problem. Why? Because it made sense to me. I always remember this experience. Change starts in the head.
