ABOUT OUR SOMMELIER
 
Elisabetta Berra was born in England to Italian parents from Veneto. "Wine has always been on our table," she says. "I remember the gatherings with Italian friends with many Italian dishes and of course wine. I wasn't a big wine fan until I moved to Valdobbiadene when I was 21 and where it is just impossible not to drink prosecco! I later became more and more interested in the wine world and therefore became a sommelier in 2013. I work as a Tour Leader and often take tourists to the local wineries. I love tasting different wines from other parts of Italy and learning directly from the producers how their wines are made and listen to their amazing stories."
