“Wine is a way to travel around the world, to gather with family and friends, or to simply share a story. ”

Since the opening of Eleanor Wine Academy in January 2019, Vittoria is our Certified WSET Level 2 & Level 1 Wine Educator.

Born and raised in Naples, in the sunny south of Italy, Vittoria moved to Amsterdam in 2014 to study a Master in Business Administration. In late 2015, Vittoria joins Eleanor Wine, an online Fine Wine platform to combine challenge and passion. Today, Vittoria is fully in charge of the Eleanor Wine Academy. She also organizes Tasting and Wine Masterclasses with Michelin * Restaurant Sommeliers in and around Amsterdam.

In 2017 Vittoria chose to study for one year in Australia, a country with a strong wine culture and identity. She obtained the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines and the Court of Master Sommelier – Introductory Certificates.

In November 2019, Vittoria flew to Jerez de la Frontera, in the warm south of Spain, and joined an intensive training with a group of International WSET Educators to foster her knowledge and understanding of Sherry wines. She has become a Certified Sherry Educators and offers classes to Sherry Lovers and Professionals.

Vittoria is a Certified Italian Wine Scholar instructor, a Langhe Wines Ambassador and a Diploma WSET Level 4 Award in Wines Student. She is enjoying her wine journey while aiming for the MW programme, the highest qualification in the Wine Industry!
