I was born and raised in Sicily and my parents don’t drink wine. I was “blinded on the road of Nero d'Avola” (the most famous Sicilian wine in the world). After graduating in Law I decided to close the codes to dedicate myself to my greatest passion: the world of wine. I enrolled in a Wine Management course at University and I moved to London for a training in a wine import company. Back to Italy I dedicate myself to the wine communication.
