WE HAVE CREATED THIS WEBSITE FOR PEOPLE LIKE US, WHO HAVE A PASSION FOR LIFE, FOOD AND GOOD WINE – ABBIAMO CREATO QUESTO BLOG PER PERSONE COME NOI, CHE HANNO LA PASSIONE PER IL BEL VIVER, BUON CIBO E GRAN VIN Growing up in New York, I have always had a passion for food and wine, trying different cuisines and working in diverse restaurants. When I moved to Italy in 2005, that passion spread quickly as I was surrounded by amazing food and wine. Going with my husband, Paolo Penso, to different wine fairs, we eventually decided to take a sommelier course. In 2007, after a few courses in wine, we graduated to be sommelier with the A.I.S (Association Italiano Sommelier). At this point, we started our blog www.wineindulgence.blogspot.com. Traveling through Italy’s wine regions and tasting my way around wine events, my love for wine became something I wanted to share with others. I decided to organize tours and tastings both in Italy and in New York. I want everyone to be able to understand the passion and hard work that goes into making a bottle of wine, as well as the tradition carried on by many wine producers. In 2009, we opened our website, where I was able to write more specifically about vineyards, wine regions, wine makers, events and, of course, specific wines. I am lucky that I meet many fantastic people as I travel, and drink as many great wines as I do. I can only hope to pass along as much of this love, knowledge and passion for the good life, to the people I will encounter in the future and to those who wish to learn about wine and its history.
