Luca is currently Head Sommelier at ‘Osteria Da Giovanna’, in his home city of Arezzo in Italy. Another of our teacher’s fortune enough to have been born in Tuscany, Luca has had the good fortune of having worked in London with no other than Steven Spurrier, Decanter contributor and begetter of the famously decisive Judgment of Paris ‘California v France’ tastings, at his club ‘Boodles’ as Head Sommelier.
This experience as well as his passion for all things wine, lead Luca to build an enviable knowledge for wines from around the world. The ultimate recognition of this devotion was competing in and winning ‘The Best Sommelier in the World 2013’, as organised by AIS/UK Sommelier Association.
In addition to managing the Osteria, Luca is engaged in training and as a private consultant.
