Growing up in New York, I, Dana Rubsam Penso, 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 wildly as I was able to divulge in amazing food and wine found here. Going with my husband, Paolo Penso, to different wine fairs, we eventually decided to take a course as a sommelier. 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 and tasting my way through wine events and regions, my love for wine and life behind became something I wanted to share with others and decided to start organizing 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 by their families past. In 2009, we opened our website, where I was able to write more specifically on vineyards, wine regions, wine makers, events and of course on specific wines.
I am lucky to meet many fantastic people as I travel forth, 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 it’s history.
