General Manager and Partner
Folio Fine Wine Partners is a new adventure among a group of seasoned professionals. I joined Folio after more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience, including seven years as General Manager of Luce della Vite, originally a joint venture between two well-known wine companies:
Marchesi de' Frescobaldi of Florence and Robert Mondavi of Napa Valley, California. As the Director of Marketing at Folio Fine Wine Partners, I am proud to be able to lead a group of talented marketing professionals in the development of wines from around the globe. For Luce, I developed the sales and marketing strategies needed to establish the company as an international presence. I have also worked at Procter & Gamble, Guala SpA, and Francesco Cinzano & Cia. To every role I have tried to offer an extensive knowledge of wine and food, a knowledge enhanced with advanced degrees in Agricultural Sciences as well as Food Science and Nutrition.
My father is also in the wine business, so wine and food have always been important to me. It's rewarding to do business with people who share my priorities.
I was born and raised in Tortona, Italy, and my wonderful family recently moved with me to beautiful Napa Valley.
