About about today’s guest host:
Cédric Izri is a French citizen, with roots in Burgundy and Champagne (unfortunately nobody in the family was making wine) . His career path has not been into wine, but in finance. He had multiple positions in multinational companies and traveled a lot across Europe and more.
He always had the objective to work in the wine world one day as he has been a long time amateur and passionate about wine. He bought his first premier grand cru of Bordeaux in 1993 (Chateau Haut Brion vintage 1990) with pocket money while being a student (prices were very affordable) and since then, never stopped buying, learning, travelling, tasting and discovering wines from France and abroad.
His passion drove Cédric to develop his knowledge and tasting skills through a number of programs. He holds the WSET Diploma, a Sake Sommelier Certification , University Degree on Geo-sensorial tasting (old practice of focusing on physical characteristics and movement of the wine in mouth)and some more. He is a Master of Wine student and since 2022 an Italian Wine Ambassador.
Cedric, aside of his regular job, runs a WSET wine school in Luxembourg and a small retail company in France and of course, has thousands of wine related projects in head!

About today’s guest producer:
Frank Cornelissen was born and grew up in Belgium. Before moving to Sicily and establishing his estate in 2001, Frank used to work as an international wine merchant, in particular focusing in Bourgogne and Bordeaux. I have read somewhere that some of the first wines he bought were a mix of 1972 Domaine de la Romanée Conti bottles. If this is true, it tells something, isn’t it?
Since Frank acquired his first bunch of ungrafted vines, he has expanded up to around 24 Ha today, mostly under vine but also olive trees, fruit trees and vegetables.
