More about Today guest moderator Michele Longari:
Until 10 years ago I was working as a Computer Engineer in Emilia Romagna, Italy. Although my daily job was in a different industry, I already had a deep and rooted passion for good wine and food. In fact, I was spending most of my spare time and holidays traveling around the regions of Italy to learn more about the local cuisine and traditional wines. Since I was becoming more and more passionate about wine, I decided to start the Professional Sommelier Diploma course with the Italian Sommelier Association, with the main idea of learning something more about wine and, at that time, I was not even planning to take the final exams. Then, the more I was involved with wine and the less I wanted to be involved with computers and coding (who can blame me?!), and so I eventually ended up taking the AIS Sommelier Diploma in 2013 then, the very same year, I moved to the UK and started an MSc programme in Wine Business Management at the Royal Agricultural University. While I was finishing my Master Dissertation, I accepted a job offer from HAY WINES, a small independent British wine merchants & importers, and now after 8 years I am still working for the same company. My official role is Purchasing Director, and my main responsibilities are purchasing strategy and imports management.

About about today’s guest producer:
“Born in London but raised in Italy in a small village called Quero near Valdobbiadene, I first entered the wine world during my latter school years through harvesting in order to earn some money. This initial interest in wine making, followed by my appreciation of the finished product, convinced me to unite what I was studying at school (economics) with this new passion, and I decided that I wanted to become a sales agent, and having had the good fortune in being raised in an English speaking family, it had to be for foreign markets.

Once I graduated, it was time to find a job but unfortunately it wasn’t that easy, especially for the position I was looking for. So, whilst job hunting, I decided to apply for that year’s harvest hoping it would be the last one! It was in this particular winery that once the harvest was over I was asked if I wanted to work full time there, unfortunately not as a sales agent but as a collaborator. This meant that I had to learn all of the jobs that one does in a winery!

My adventure in this winery lasted nearly five years, after which I decided that as I had acquired all the necessary skills and knowledge, it was time for me to move on and pursue my dream job. During this transitioning time, one of my job interviews was with a business called VENEGAZZU VINI, a company that unites and distributes wines and spirits from the two small family owned wineries and one distillery.
