I am originally from Las Vegas, NV and have been living in Florence for over 11 years. i came to Florence to study interior design, after working in the field for many years i decided to follow my love and appreciation of vino.
The wonderful world of old world wines produced in Italy inspired me to begin my studies towards becoming a Sommelier of which I am an official member.
i have been working in food and wine tourism ever since then, taking happy clients throughout the tuscan region.
For my wine and food tours I choose boutique locations with the highest quality of service and products. I want my clients to enjoy an educational experience and to learn all about Tuscan wines, regions and our appellation system. I want to share the kind of experiences I love of touring the vineyards and cellars, then having a long slow lunch accompanied by a lateral tasting of gorgeous complex award wining wines from the estate. All the while soaking up the unforgettable views and eating pasta with Tuscan delights such as porcini mushrooms or the precious truffles from the region.
I do not believe in hitting as many points as possible and being rushed around in a group on a time limit by a stressed out tour guide, this is not how I like to experience Italy and is not how I want to present the delicacies and beauty that this region has to offer to my guests.
Everything in Italy should be enjoyed at a leisurely pace and with passion!
