Claudia Riva di Sanseverino is originally from Bologna, raised in the old town part near the Due Torri, symbol of this city. Growing up in an important family she developed an innate talent for good food, taste and wine. She’s an AIS (Italian Sommelier Association) 1-2 level and to become 3 soon, delayed because of the pandemic.
At one point of her life Claudia decided to become a sommelier and to unify her family experience, personal taste, travels, stays when she lived in Parma, Florence and Milan and work experience (30 years as Congress Manager ) and, not to mention her roots from father’s part,…. Sicily. All this gave an explosive mixture to her personality, sympathy and joy of life.
She likes visiting wineries and relates her trips with short videos in stories and reels of winemakers, locations, cultural events posting frequently on her Instagram profile her experiences.
Successful wine communicator, she writes currently for the column “The Voice of blogger” for Wine Tales Magazine. At the middle of her path she would love to unite her skills as an event organizer with her knowledge of wine.
