Hi, this is Paula. I love wine, food and traveling- like most of us. I am a WSET Diploma in Wine candidate with formal culinary training by the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners. I came to NYC in ’95 and from day one I was in the hospitality industry, which culminated with me running my own restaurant and wine bar with my husband Renato, a WSET Diploma holder. After a beautiful 10 year run I continue to be one lucky gal as my job is to buy great wines for a great bunch. I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to visit numerous wine regions around the world and meet incredibly talented wine producers. Moved by their stories and the wines that they make, I wanted to share some of my experiences here. Welcome to my page. In Vino Felicitas!
