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.

There are a lot of  important days in our lives we have to think of and plan to make them memorable. Often we try to include as many services as possible in our special days, to make them unique, like for example to have a really good Chef, a custom made menu, or great wines to pair with it, finishing with a lovely cake. Obviously there are different ways to arrange a memorable day like this, even not having a professional Chef but a local Tuscan cook who makes traditional dishes that are delicious. Tuscany venues offer a wide choice of options as to where you can prepare a rustic aperitif, a nice and fresh lunch, or a great dinner in a terrace under the Tuscan stars with breathtaking views of Tuscan hills and lush vineyards in Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti, San Gimignano, Florence. I worked for many years in famous restaurants and catering companies and have a long experience in setting up, arranging and making all your wishes for these events come true. Rustic chic, formal or classic setups can be arranged and adjusted in any moment according to your preferences. There is always a perfect choice for every need and expectation about your banquet, and I am there to understand, help prepare and ensure that all the details respect your wishes. Tuscany, Italy offers great venues with wonderful possibilities for any special day you want to live here, be it weddings, special birthdays, anniversaries, family & friends’ reunions, or just a meal with friends in front of a spectacular view – I am here to arrange it for you in Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, Chianti, so the only thing you have to do is JUST ENJOY IT!

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 ?
