About Luca Cinì
I remember when my grandma used to give me a piece of bread soaked into a glass of wine..i suppose that’s how everything started. Years later my mom used to tell me the adventures of my uncle, great wine and food lover. In the early ’70 he was used to hit Bordeaux by car “just” to attend some great wine dinner. The passion for good wines and good food is definitely in my DNA, same as many Italians. I started drinking good wines when i was young, going quite often to the first fancy wine bar in my hometown with a good friend, now he is a chef there. He introduced me to the magical world of premium wines. I remember a nice trip to Montalcino with him. I became so passionate about it that i decided to study to become a professional in the wine business. From 2002 to 2003 i attended the 3 AIS (Italian Sommeliers Association, part of the International Sommeliers Association) courses and the “Marketing of Wine” course at Gambero Rosso Schools in Rome. In the mean time I opened a Wine Representative Agency in central Italy, selling top Italian brands and after that a wine shop and wine distribution in my hometown. In 2011 started my adventure in Asia and i moved to Hong Kong, working in the wine industry for almost 3 years, doing wine consulting, training and selling wines to the very top restaurants and hotels of the city. Now i’m here to share with you the charm of what i like to call “The Wonderful Essence”.
