Born and raised in Tuscany, I grew up with wine! I became always more passionate about the enogastronomy, therefore I decided to deepen my knowledge about it attending the Sommelier Course and also a Master Course in International Marketing of Wine. After few years of experience in another winery in Montalcino, I am now the Hospitality Manager for Podere Le Ripi since 2017. I take care of desiging the experiences for our guests and I lead their journey through the estate and the tasting of our wines. My goal is to make them feeling our real sense of place, appreciating our culture and living memorable moments. I cannot wait to welcome you here and show you around!
