A Personal Note from AJ

 

Having been in the F&B business for over 25 years, moving up the ranks of a kitchen hand in a hotel to the Operations Director in one of the finest Italian restaurants. It was not a bottle of wine that sparked my love and passion for wine, but it was a little red grape. It inspired me to uncover the secrets of how a little grape could evoke such complexity of texture, aromas, and flavors. Enticed my senses, filling me with expressions and emotions which I had never experienced before. "The blood of Jove" or Sangiovese to be precise.

I have since dedicated myself to developing a sound knowledge of wines, travelling to the vineyards in Italy for a first hand personal experience on how grapes are cultivated and harvested, and studying the history and fundamentals of old world wine-making. In 2009, I was appointed by Marco Bacci as the direct family representative of 3 of the best wineries in Tuscany, Castello di Bossi, Renieri di Montalcino & Terre di Talamo. Today, I am the Ambassador of Wines - Asia, for the 3 wineries of Marco and Jacopo Bacci.

"You need not be a wine connoisseur with an amazing sense of smell to appreciate wine, all you need is a sense of curiosity and a mind that loves to explore. An ability to wonder and the willingness to teach yourself to appreciate more than meets the eye. Each moment you spend with the glass in your hand, opens a new chapter of life experiences on a journey filled with inspiring melodies, tantalizing tastes and notes of enticing pleasure"
