Silvia is the founder of Divino in Vino, a boutique wine service based in London, offering tastings, workshops and events.
Before becoming a sommelier, Silvia wrote about wine as a journalist in Florence, but quickly realised that writing wasn't enough & began organising events at Studio Umami, and worked at the renowned Florentine wine bar, Coquinarius.
She moved to the UK in 2013, to show Londoners how to love and appreciate wine as a true Italian does. She worked as a wine specialist and educator for Bedales Wines - a gem of a wine bar in Borough Market - before moving into what she does now: running tastings, workshops, WSET courses and events.
