Who is a Personal Sommelier?
I am Alessandra and welcome to my website! To answer the question above, a sommelier is a professional of wine service as well as food and wine pairing while a personal sommelier is more than that. It's someone that takes care of your wine knowledge and your wine shopping, and does its best to offer unforgettable wine moments with tailor made experiences.

Therefore during your stay in Florence find out a little time to dedicate to wine, and I would be glad to be your personal sommelier.
As a professional, I will guide you through a single or multiple private wine tastings discovering the most we can about wine: how it is made, best food and wine pairings, the Italian wine quality regulation, the huge variety of local grapes and many other wine topics.

We will sip and buy wine (if you like) in the best wine shops I personally selected to guarantee the most authentic experience. In addition you will have the possibility to ship your favorite bottles back home.

My aim is to give you sip by sip, the instruments to pick the right wine bottle from the shelf on your own, to recognize a good wine, to create a great food and wine pairing, in other words to build and/or improve your wine skills.

It will be a wine tasting, wine lesson and wine shopping session, all at once. Just perfect!

What can I do for you?
Here are the services I offer:

  • private tasting & wine shopping in the best wine shops in Florence
