The creators are an Italian-Australian couple, Andrea and Olivia. The duo are passionate about Italian wine and are furthering their interest with an Italian sommelier course through AIS.
Andrea is from Piemonte, one of Italy’s best wine regions famous for Barolo, Moscato d’Asti, and Barbaresco and first became interested in wine whilst working at a local restaurant.
Olivia studied the WSET wine course in Melbourne, Australia before deciding to move to Italy to learn more about food and wine. She worked in agriturismi and wineries in Tuscany and Piedmont where she took part in the vendemmia or wine harvest. She now runs small group tours focused on food and wine throughout Italy with Untold Italy as well as a personal travel blog at Livguine.
