About today’s Guest Producer – Anderson Hernanes
Anderson Hernanes de Carvalho Andrade Lima, better known as Hernanes or simply “The Prophet,” was born in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, in 1985.
A successful athlete with great skill, ball control, and a powerful shot with both his right and left legs, Hernanes played for various teams both in Brazil (São Paulo), Italy (Lazio, Internazionale, and Juventus), and even China, as well as representing the Brazilian national team (2014 World Cup and 2008 Summer Olympics). He won titles wherever he went, such as the Brazilian Championship twice with São Paulo, the Italian Championship with Juventus, and the Coppa Italia with Lazio and Juventus.
As for wine, Hernanes had no previous contact with it and was abstinent until 2010, when São Paulo sold him to Lazio in Italy. From there, a passion for wine completely took over Hernanes.
When he moved to Internazionale Milan in the 2013/14 season, the midfielder began to take his passion seriously. Things progressed even further between 2015 and 2016 when the Brazilian transferred to Juventus.
Upon arriving in Turin, Hernanes visited several wine regions and became enchanted by Monferrato. At the time, he didn’t own a house in Italy and thought it would be the perfect place to establish his residence, so he started looking for something there. During these searches, he found Ca’ del Profeta, which he purchased in 2015.
In addition to the Ca’ del Profeta winery, Hernanes also owns Ca’ del Profeta Ristorante & Relais, a wine tourism destination, and a wine bistrot in Turin called Luogo Divino.
