Born in Tirana, Albania, where I studied to be a Oboe Professor and worked at the Tirana Opera Theater, I moved to Italy in 1997, and immediately fell in love with Italian food and wine, having the chance to work for a top caterer of the country. I waited at exclusive events in Embassies, Vatican, Montecitorio and top luxury private villas, building up a new profession that is now deep in my heart.
I love arts in general, music, cinema, literature, old architecture, wine and food. It is a real art to make wine and to cook, there is love, passion, creativity, always searching for flavours, taste, pleasure and happiness. I discovered more and more about wine and culinary world in Tuscany and Italy, and still I have to try, to see and learn a lot about it. My deep passion for Italian wines made me become a Certified Sommelier with AIS (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) of Arezzo, Italy, after which I started to conduct private wine tours & tastings in wineries & villas around Tuscany.
I also love people, love to learn more about other cultures, ways of thinking, sharing thoughts, ideas, feelings about art, history and culture, but I prefer to do all this with a glass of great wine in my hand and around a beautiful table or terrace with good food and great company.
