Co-Moderator – Marco Nordio
Born in Chioggia (Venezia) and trained as an economist at Bocconi University in Milano.
After spending 10 years working in finance in Italy and overseas I set sail to NZ with my yacht and I landed there after a 3 yr journey.
In NZ I studied Wine Science at the Auckland University and I planted a small vineyard with Nebbiolo and Pinot Grigio on my land. I reached a full barrel production of Nebbiolo before turning to importing Italian wines in NZ.
I import a large portfolio of Italian wines, probably the largest in NZ and Podere Le Ripi is my star Montalcino producer.

Guest Bio – Sebastian Nasello
Since 12 years when I was 24 years old i take care of Podere le Ripi, at the beginning only like winemaker and few years after like CEO and partner, leading a team of 30 young guys through the path of biodynamic agriculture and farm house model.
In the 2016 I won the PREMIO GAMBELLI as best winemaker under 35 years loyal to the traditional Sangiovese style.
Three years ago i also found BAKKANALI a personal project with 7 hectare , where I grow Sangiovese on the close Mountain Amiata, fermented whole cluster style and also growing Jura grapes at 800 msl , this project represent just the pure love for the pleasure to study and explore a new amazing terroir unspoiled yet .
6 months ago with some collogues we also launch VINERIA APERTA, a cool and fresh new wine bar with kitchen in Montalcino with over 1500 wine labels from every vineyard in the world, this crazy place point to be the melting aim for wine nerds and geeks in the area. Made by User for User this our mantra.
