What advice do you have for other women wanting to get into the wine world?
The woman is emerging more and more in the world of wine, which until a few years ago was the prerogative of purely male elite. This is fantastic! Like many other women of wine, I support the importance of a female share in this world. To those who like me want to turn their passion into a profession I recommend to always be curious, eager to learn new things every day, read, experiment, innovate to refine their skills, and especially travel everywhere: to get the most authentic and genuine knowledge you have to meet the people who made history, interact and deeply dive into culture.
What is the most interesting wine region you have visited and the one on top of your wish list?
The region that has touched me so far has been Burgundy, which I visited a summer a few years ago. It was exciting to cross the terroirs from where the famous grand cru are born. The villages are delightful and fascinating to visit, and each wine tasting was an intense sensory experience. I am obviously in love with my Italy, in particular of Montalcino to which I am linked, with its beautiful landscapes and the great red wines that I adore. I love traveling and I was lucky enough to visit many wine regions in the world. Outside Italy I visited some interesting wineries in California (Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara), France (Alsace, Champagne, Burgundy), and South Australia. In the future I would like to discover wine in Chile, Argentina, New Zealand and certainly also Canada for its excellent “ice wines”.
