Living the Tuscan dream:
I grew up in a family that took great pleasure in it, discussing and comparing different varieties, qualities and wine growing regions. But it was only many years later that I discovered my own passion for wine.
It was one of those coincidences – and there are many in the wine world – which led me to help out in a wine shop. Over time, I became absolutely intrigued by the sheer diversity and complexity of this subject. I began studying wine, was awarded the WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits. As a result I gained a deeper knowledge and respect for wine, managing a wine shop for two years. Following my dream still further, I have been living in a beautiful part of Tuscany since 2012.
Ever curious about the wines of the world I worked at a winery in Chile's Casablanca Valley over the winter 2016/17. A wonderful experience discovering quite different wine realities and great qualities at the same time.
