Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo!

wineterview, elenatuscany, elena tuscany, jelena voronovaHei …Avete già iniziato a fare una lista di buoni propositi per l’anno prossimo? Io ancora sono al resoconto del 2015, un anno sotto il segno del vino, iniziato con l’esame AIS superato eccellentemente a febbraio ed in chiusura  con questo ultimo post dell’anno. In sette mesi di vita, Wineterview ha raccolto 26 interviste ed è stato visto da 2235 persone. Questo progetto mi ha dato la possibilità di conoscere persone straordinarie, fare nuove amicizie e  sicuramente approfondire le mie conoscenze sul vino. Come ciliegina sulla torta, la mia dispensa di vini si è triplicata, al punto  che non sapevo più dove metterli. Così è nata la mia cantina personale, molto semplice, situata nel punto più fresco e buio della casa e divisa per varie tipologie. Vini acquistati per la maggior parte direttamente dai produttori. Curiosi di vederla?

2015 has been all about wine for me and i am so grateful for it: I successfully passed AIS (Italian Sommelier Association) exam in February and launched my blog in June which  received 2235 unique visitors in 7 month. I’m delighted to have met all the extraordinary people you read about in my posts, and excited to make new friends and learning more about the industry. It’s a pleasure to personally meet people who make the wine you drink. The producers are equally excited to meet the consumers and hear about the fruit of their labor. This relationship is why the wine tourism is so popular and  why i’m so delighted to live in Tuscany having easy access to a surplus off wineries. My wine storage has tripled lately and I needed to reorganize it. Now when i have finished making my brand new cellar at home I’m ready to show you the collection coming along. Want a sneak peek? 🙂
