I live in and love Tuscany for its unique nature, beauty, marvellous landscape, mouth-watering food, gold olive oil and at least but not last its great wines (you never want to stop drinking).
My job consists in arranging wine & food tours all around the best wine regions of Tuscany and Umbria, conduct private wine tastings in villas, coordinate wedding services at international destination weddings in beuatiful venues around Cortona, Siena, Chianti, Florence, Montepulciano, just to name a few.
As Sommelier often I am invited to help choose the right wedding reception menu with the wedding planner (my girlfriend) when bride and groom come to Tuscany. And there can never be a fantastic dinner of traditional Italian food without amazing Italian wines, which I sometimes provide, perfectly paired with the menu. A long experience built up working for top catering companies and restaurants of Tuscany allows me to decide the right location to set up ceremony, aperitif, wedding dinner, cutting of the cake and open bar. This is a job that gives you emotions when you do the last touches to the tables, chairs, tablecloths, flowers, candles, plates, cutlery, glasses and napkins – all details that make a big difference thanks to my accuracy also looking after caterers and florists. There are moments when you look at the cloudy sky hoping to see soon the Tuscan sun shine again and play with the beautiful colours of Tuscany’s countryside with rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves, wheat and sunflower fields.
I am sorry I am a little emotional talking about this, but when I am on site to coordinate private events I always make sure that everything goes the best way.

What else can you dream of, after a long day around Tuscany ? to find a nice and fresh aperitif, by the pool or under the pergola with an amazing view ! There are a lot of ways to organise nice and simple things with some really fresh Prosecco or white and red wine, plus different fresh seasonal food available in Tuscany. The secret is: tasty, easy, appealing, to let you relax and have fun drinking, eating, chatting under a pergola with sweet scented flowers in total tranquillity – nice & quiet evenings in villas or wherever you are staying. Some good mozzarella with fresh tomatoes and basil, freshly-cut Tuscan salami, ham and cheese, delicious home-made olives, enjoying every moment without thinking to buy and prepare things for you, family and friends.

Every single moment has to be magic and full of joy because you’re in Tuscany, the region that offers lots of really genuine products – for me it’s so easy to arrange them in a simple way to make you enjoy it and feel happy … with a lot of wine. Can you think of anything but some nice finger food and tasty wines, an aperitif on an hot summer evening under the Tuscan stars ? I can make this dream come true with just a few things and one hour to prepare it. For me simple things are always the best and this is the Leit Motif of my life. Good things to eat, great wines to drink and it is always the right time for an aperitif. Don’t you think so too ??? Contact me to arrange a private food & wine event in Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, Pienza … and together we will create a unique celebration.

Once I arrived in Italy – I came to Cortona, Tuscany, in 1997 – I had the chance to work in the best restaurant & catering company of Italy, where I learned all the secrets about high quality service, preparation and banqueting. Being part of professional teams I was in different cities to cater for exclusive events & banquets – all very different kinds of services and styles for top VIP clients.

Destination Events in Tuscany are really important days, no matter how big they are, and with my 15-year experience also in several well known restaurants and caterers of Tuscany they will be easy to plan, because I will assist you to ensure that everything runs smoothly during the day. And here my passion for wines comes handy too, because being a first a wine lover and second a Certified Sommelier I can give you useful ideas to help find together the wines that pair best with your meal, be it for aperitif, seated reception, cake, dessert. My deep knowledge of banqueting can be very useful also to easily identify the right location for the various moments of the day.

I’ll be happy to help you create your menu, find the right setting at the chosen venue with perfect view and light, to get the best of what the location offers. There is a lot of work to prepare events & banquets, but with the right people – professional, with long experience and an open mind – at your side, each step of the planning process will be easy, don’t you think so ? Contact me to plan your special celebration in Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Chianti and together we will make your dreams come true!
