Oro del Cipriani - Venezia

Originally from Piedmont, now based in Venice, she first approached wine after training for the dining room service. She’s got the attitude of a rebel, with no pre-set limits, always in search for new inspiration. All this allows her guests to have a pleasantly unique tasting experience.
