VALDISOLE TEAM

Giuseppe Amato

Founder, Winemaker, Visionnaire
Certified Sommelier and Certified Wine Taster from the Italian Association of Sommelier.

Giuseppe has always been attracted by the world of gastronomy and attended many cooking classes as a hobby. Motivated by his curiosity to learn how to pair food with wine, a few years ago he started taking sommelier courses. He entered the world of wine almost as a teetotaler, but then it happened; he fell in love with the entire world of wine, starting to appreciate its history, quality, and study more and more. Soon he felt the need to go beyond the wine tasting experience and understand the soul of the wine; in brief, to make it. Since he doesn’t originate from a family of winemakers, he decided to buy a vineyard, and so, it happened that the first vineyard was bought on a website specializing in used things! Yes, you read that correctly. It was half a hectare of abandoned and shabby Nebbiolo. That's how Valdisole was born back in 2015.
