I was born in Tuscany and have always lived here. A part of my family comes from Friuli region and I am convinced that this is the perfect mix: both are lands of food and wine lovers. Mix that left an indelible trace in me that today from a simple passion has turned into an exciting commitment.
For many years, I have been involved in other professional fields, working in the construction world and finding the time to complete a Master's Degree in Law, which has always fascinated me.
A couple of years ago I met a friend of mine who had worked in Dublin. A long chat about the desire for Italian excellence abroad and from there the idea was born, soon transformed into a project and, with the decisive presence of my life partner Irina, in the following months, it became a reality, that we strongly want to grow by involving our food and wine Tuscan excellences.
For twenty years I worked as a food and wine consultant. All born from personal curiosity towards the world of wine, after all, I lived in the heart of the Chianti Classico area since 1995. I started with the professional sommelier course with the Italian Sommelier Association (AIS) in Florence. I also added a diploma as a sommelier with the Sommelier Hotels and Restaurants Italian Federation (FISAR).
Then I completed a Master in Digital Marketing at the PIN of Prato (Educational and scientific services for the University of Florence) and I realized the personal website Sparkling Life which focuses on Italian food and wine excellence, trying to spread its culture and lifestyle.
I was selected in the competition “Italia a Tavola – Personality of the Year of Food and Wine, and Hospitality” since 2015 for six consecutive years, and among the best 36 Italian professionals: Maitre, Sommelier, and Hotel Manager with excellent results up to the fantastic second place in 2018.
