Somm. Selects – Erica

About Erica

Wine is my passion. As a child in Italy, we used to do an all-female hippy harvest with my mum and her friends, of course, ending in a big party! I remember it fondly – to be in touch with nature, running through vines, tasting grapes and pressing them with my feet.

When I turned 21, I moved to London and started to work as Junior sommelier at the Michelin starred La Chapelle, learning how to pair wines with delicious French food!

Later, when I joined Borough Wines, they gave me the opportunity to study with WSET and be in charge of the wine selection in their first legendary restaurant in Hackney – L’Entrepot.

After that I was so in love with hospitality and the wine industry. It was a joy to work for top establishments like Tamarind (the UK’s first Michelin starred Indian) and later in distribution for Moreno Wines and most recently representing Barcelona’s  winery Democratic Wines.

Always following my nose for innovation and passion.
I’m really glad to be back collaborating with BW for this digital project, that brings together wine lovers and somms during these crazy times.
