Barbara currently owns her own consulting firm, Apri La Creative, and works with clients across California and Italy. In 2023, she became an Italian Wine Ambassador at Vinitaly International Academy.

More about the host:
Victoria Cece is a food and beverage storyteller whose curiosity is somewhere deep in a bowl of pasta or a bottle of wine. A fool for history, you can find her reading up about ancient grape varietals or wandering around a little Italian town eating everything in sight, under her alias Slutti Spaghetti.
