Niklas Bergqvist started out in the kitchens of various restaurants in Stockholm, Sweden. A deep interest in wine made him take a sommelier course to understand the concepts of matching wine and food. A badly broken leg then led him to the WSET Diploma, which he finished as the best Continental European student in 2012. Since then he is working full time with wine as head sommelier in a members club for wine collectors as well as a wine educator. He is a Vinitaly International Academy Italian Wine Expert.
