I was born in Hannover, Germany, in 1977, but it was during my studies at the Hamburg university that I discovered my passion for wine! Once I left university I began to work as assistent manager in one of Hamburg's most renowned wine boutiques to understand more about its appeal.
A few years later I took some time off to travel throughout Italy. I immediately fell in love with this incredible country - and its outstanding wines, of course!
After two years of travelling around and working in various places I finally decided to settle south of Florence – at the gates of the Chianti Classico. Since then I worked in some tuscan wineries and wine stores. As a sommelier of the esteemed AIS association it's always a great pleasure to me to introduce wine lovers to the fantastic panorama of authentic tuscan wines! I'd like to share my knowledge and experience with people from all over the globe!
See you soon...
