I have always worked with wine since I attended the hospitality school where I discovered the extraordinary power of the olfactive sense. I graduated as Sommelier within the Italian Sommelier Association when I was 21 and I practiced the profession in Michelin-Starred restaurant in Italy and in London where I achieved the WSET Level 4 Diploma.
Today I am an export consultant and wine lecturer for Lorenzo de Medici Institute in Florence and Cattolica University of Brescia. I organize wine event and wine masterclasses and I express my creative nature through my YouTube Channel “L’Assaggiastorie” where I tell the stories of the wine producers in short video-documentaries.
I am a judge for oenological competition and, since 2022, Ambassador for the Heroic Viticulture for CERVIM, a type of viticulture that I am very fond of.
Why an Italy4golf Ambassador
Italy for golf is an open door to the visitors of my region: Veneto.
Here the production of wine is rooted with the traditions of the people, who never give up to a glass of wine as a proper reward after a day of hard work (locally called ombra). The intricated connection is visible into the many wine-area that exists here, and by the fact that it is the N.1 wine-producing region in Italy (the same volumes as Australia).
Prosecco wine in particular is the leader: the beauties of its steep territories are still untold but they may deserve some fabulous surprises! Being an Italy4golf Ambassador is a true opportunity for me to introduce the visitors of my region into the places and experiences who will make their staying authentically connected with the local life.
