Wine Associate, Premium Wine & Spirits
Being born and raised in Italy, Cristiano has always been surrounded by wine. After a degree in Music Engineering he developed a keen interest in wine. This curiosity led Cristiano to work for two different wine boutique stores in Verona, Italy in 2004. Cristiano moved to Tuscany in 2009 and started collaborating with small wineries to help promote their products to foreign tourists. Outside of work Cristiano enjoys snowboarding, horseback riding, listening to music, and cooking.
