I was born in 1978, and ever since the beginning of the 80s - during waning moon - my father and I would go down into our family cellar to bottle red wine from the Oltrepò pavese area. I would then come up mildly inebriated by the decanting effort.
in Milan and Pavia
A barman since 2016, I finally fulfilled my passion for wine in 2012 by graduating as a sommelier from FISAR, the Italian Federation of Sommeliers.
Since then I’ve been working hand in hand with the FISAR – Delegation of Pavia, as well as with winemakers from the Oltrepò Pavese area. I preside over and host wine-tasting events on behalf of the A.R.C.I. Vite Suonate cultural association. Moreover, I regularly take part in wine fairs, such as Vinitaly, Autunno Pavese, Oltrevini.
Striving to create a compelling emotional experience, I aim at sharing the intense passion and enthusiasm the tasting ritual arouses in me.
The Prêt à sommelier project
From a sommelier to a... personal sommelier
Opening a bottle of wine should first of all feel like an adventure, a journey, an enjoyment. This is the exact reason why I came up with the idea for my Prêt à sommelier project in 2016; taking both wine buffs and complete novices on a simple spontaneous journey through the world of wine, without actually assuming to cover the whole matter.
