Certified Sommelier and Italian Native

Stefano Zanoncello

Stefano is a native of Verona, Italy.  Wine and food are his passions.  In 2013 he left his job in banking and his beloved Verona to begin a career in wine and currently works as a fine wine consultant in Boston.  He is a Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and his own studies are never ending.  For Stefano, it isn’t just the taste of the wine that holds his intrigue, it is the history, the geography, the geology—every aspect of the grape growing and wine making process.  He is proficiently bilingual but Italian is his mother tongue, which makes for a really charming accent.
