My name is Francesco and I’m a wine lover, drinker, student and educator at the same time. I participate and organise wine tastings and wine holidays. I give advice on wine lists for events and small restaurants. I completed the WSET level 3 in London, with distinction.

My expertise is on old world wine, above all Italian: specially southern, from Puglia -where I am from, Basilicata, Sicilia and Campania.

I love burgundian style white, earthy red, old rioja whites and great Verdicchio. I love old riesling, Etna Bianco and Rosso as well. And many others, to be honest.

I live in London, Europe.

On this blog you will find a collection of thoughts about wines, events, holidays, restaurants and shops. I like to take notes on Vivino and you can find me here.
