Having been in the F&B business for over 22 years, I have cultivated a long standing love and passion for wines. When I first tasted a classic Italian red, it inspired me to uncover the secrets of how a little grape could evoke such complexity of texture, aromas, and flavors I experienced. I have since dedicated myself to developing a sound knowledge of wines, travelling to the vineyards in Italy for a first hand personal experience on how grapes are cultivated and harvested, and studying the history and fundamentals of wine-making. In 2009, I was appointed as the direct family representative of the wineries of Marco Bacci.
For many of us, the world of wine and wine appreciation may seem intimidating, but it need not be at all. Anyone can begin the journey of learning about wine and how to taste wine at their own pace and in their own style. Some wine lovers get excited and are bubbling with passion in their approach towards the world of fine wine, while others will prefer to pace themselves a step at a time, or just simply enjoying a glass of wine occasionally. Whichever path you choose, it only takes an introduction to get you started, to make you feel comfortable about tasting and assessing, discussing, and appreciating wine. An introduction I would like to share with you.
