More about the Co-Moderator – Charlotte Ho
Charlotte’s love for Italian wines was born during a trip to Tuscany in 2012. After that, she visited Italy every year, exploring different regions and their local food and wines. During Covid-19 — unable to travel, Charlotte decided to embark on a journey to systematically study and learn about Italian grapes and wines. With a background in Law and Economics (but not having studied wine…) she (boldly) enrolled in VIA’s IWM course in 2021 and (miraculously) became a VIA IWA the following year. Apart from promoting Italian wines in Hong Kong through volunteering in events and tastings, Charlotte also started a social media account in 2021 dedicated to the sharing and spreading of knowledge and love for Italian wines.

Sonia Spadaro Mulone
Sonia is the owner and CEO of Santa Maria La Nave., Sonia has transformed in few years a small family vineyard into a real jewel of Etnean viticulture and biodiversity. Despite the very limited quantities produced, Sonia’s wines reach more than 20 countries in the World, are requested by some of the best restaurants and sophisticated collectors, and are appreciated by international critics (for instance Millesulmare 2016 has been included by Decanter in the list of the 50 Most Exciting Wines in the World).
Sonia’s mission is to protect Mount Etna’s biodiversity and identify and work with ancient and almost extinct local grape varieties, while maintaining maximum respect to the Etna traditions, the environment and the local communities. Her work on ancient “reliquia” grape varieties is carried with the support of the University of Catania.
Linked to her dedication to biodiversity, Sonia is also the co-founder of a company specialized in creating Sicilian Spirits with rare local ingredients. The first launch is Vulcanica, a Vodka obtained distilling ancient Sicilian grains. In 2020 Sonia has received the Simenza Award for her activity as Custodian of Sicilian and Etnean biodiversity.
