After a long career in the luxury fashion industry, a sudden change a few years ago prompted me to explore my budding, or should I say, full grown interest in wine.  I figured that if things were not going to move forward in fashion retail I would develop my passion and make it my career someday.  Well, the need to make money got in the way for a couple of years.  I did continue attending tastings weekly as well as having my own (yes sometimes by myself, do not judge), reading about wines of the world and visits to vineyards in Europe, Asia and North America.  I am always having friends over for Italian dinners.

My ultimate dream is to open a wine bar where I and an experienced team will create an open, welcoming atmosphere and share our knowledge of wines to our guests. I’ve not gotten there yet!
In the meantime, why not organize tasting parties and share my knowledge that way.
Welcome, San Carlo Wine Tastings!

Some of you may have already attended either tastings at my home or my latest wine tasting event, Il Dolce VIno, created by my company San Carlo Wine Tastings. The name comes from the town where my Great Grandparents, Carlo and Giuditta Possidente were born in the region of Campania, Italy, and is close to Naples. I’ve been there many times over the years and have frequently been to other regions across the Italian peninsula.
My mission with this company is to create a space where people can mingle with each other, relax and learn about wine.  I can create themed tasting in small groups or larger up to 40 people, consult with you on wines for a special event you are hosting, or help you organize your wine collection.  I can come to you or work to find a space to host your private gathering. There are currently 4 packages offered at different price levels depending on how fancy you want it. We do not offer food but can work with you on sources within my network and pair it accordingly to your selection. Italian wine is my passion.  My knowledge, however, is extensive across all wine regions of the world so if Italian wine is not your passion, no problem! You let me know what you’d like your guests to enjoy, no matter where in the world we go!

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Cheers! Cin Cin!
