Welcome to my website.
Who Am I?
I’m a boutique hotel and restaurant owner in Italy who has developed a fascination for the wonderful wines of Italy. My journey started in Le Marche which, from a wine perspective, is one of the less well-known regions in Italy. That’s not because the wines aren’t good – it’s because most of the vineyards just don’t produce enough for export and it has always been overshadowed by it’s much more famous neighbour Tuscany.
Anyway, getting back to me – there is plenty of time to talk about wine! I have always liked wine and once I knew I would be a hotel and restaurant owner decided to learn more through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) in London and have so far achieved their Level 3 Award in Wines and hope to achieve their Diploma status next year.
Over the years I’ve become passionate about spreading the word about the Italian wines of Le Marche and decided also to include wines from other regions in Italy so that anybody interested in Italian wines gets the full picture. My plan is to make my way around as many vineyards as possible and to write about their wines.
I also run wine tours, which people love, currently focusing on Le Marche and planning to expand to other regions in the near future.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
Ciao for now!
