Born in Albania where I leave till I graduate from high school. After spending 12 years in Rome, Italy, the Restaurant industry brought me in New York City for a while and then Rochester where I planned my roots. As a little kid I loved going at my family farm house in Albania  and see vines grow, and learn how to make spirits out of them. But wine is specifically what I fall in love with. I always found the time to visit wineries through Tuscany, Rioja, Long Island and now Finger Lakes. On October 2019 I completed Level 1 sommelier certification. Employee of Wegmans Food Market where I am learning all the aspects of the company with the goal to work for the Beverage department.
