Born in 1982 in Italy, after a Master’s degree in Japanese Language I crossed the continent and started living near Osaka.
I worked as programmer at first, then in 2009 I discovered a deep interest for wine and started studying Italian wines with some friends. In 2012 I spent some months in New Zealand, where I took my WSET Level 3, then I went back to Japan and started working in a wine shop. Now I am still on the wine business, even though not in the sales department.
Studying is my hobby: Wine Expert for the JSA (Japan Sommelier Association), Beer Taster for the Japan Craft Beer Association, Comrade of Cheese and German Wine Expert for the Japanese German Wine Association.
After two long and hard years I finally managed to obtain the WSET Diploma in April 2017. Now we go on to better things.
