Vittorio Del Bono Venezze

Founder Sommelier

I was born in Florence in 1962 and I have been working as a Sommelier here in Italy for ten years. My background is in Wine Tasting, as well as Food & Wine Journalism, and I have got an extensive knowledge on Wines coming from all regions of Italy, thus including Chianti and Tuscany.
Thanks to my experience, I am in contact with a large network of local Wineries, from the worldwide known key players to the small family-owned Farms that are usually away from standard Tourism Routes in Italy, the ones that I call "Boutique Wineries".

My first approach to the World of Wine was the participation to the Professional Sommelier Course in Florence in 2001, where I gained a holistic knowledge of this unique Product.
Ever since, I felt that my aim is to spread the Wine Culture among Wine Lovers coming from all over the world, and this is how the Florence Wine Academy was born, in order to host all those that appreciate Italian Wine and are willing to learn more about it.
Italy is a fantastic Country to Visit, with one of a kind Traditions, Historical Places to See and unique Products. It is a pleasure for me to play my part in helping visitors enjoying their Trip to Italy by getting to know more about its Culture.
