I’ve spent more than 10 years deeply involved in many aspects of the Wine Business. My career milestones include:

1) Handling Public Relations, Marketing and Sales Management for Poderi Luigi Einaudi (one of the finest Producers in the Dogliani area of Piemonte, still owned by the descendants of Luigi Einaudi, the beloved and forward-thinking first President of Italy).

2) Managing Export Sales and Key Accounts at Fattoria Montellori (Florence, Tuscany), an historical winery masterfully guided by Alessandro Nieri, heir of the equally enlightened father Bepi, who was able to combine Chianti's expertise in Sangiovese winemaking with a French approach and style, generating a range of top class wines.

3) Working as Fine Wine Specialist and Wine Department Manager in Eataly Roma (Rome, Lazio), the largest location of the famous chain of Italian wine and food shops, where the biodiversity and uniqueness of Italian agricultural production are promoted and celebrated, following the innovative vision of the prodigious entrepreneur Oscar Farinetti.

4) Working as Export Project Manager at FONTANAFREDDA ESTATES (Serralunga d’Alba, Piemonte), overseeing the international sales of Fontanafredda’s brands within Eataly's network, while also teaching and training both Eataly's staff and customers on the Winery’s fine wine production throughout Italian winemaking history.

5) Sales Manager at Heres 2.0., one of Italy’s finest wine companies, offering distribution and consulting services to top Italian and International Wineries, and focused exclusively on fine restaurants and wine shops. I managed the Sales activities in the Northern Italian Territory, andIam also a member of the Wine Selection Panel, and of the Business Development Group, elaborating business strategies for all the wineries that needed our service to be more performing.

Proudly named "Knight of the wines and white truffles d'Alba", delighted by the fruits of my land, today I am ready for a new challenge, where to employ all my knowledge and experiences in food and wine.
