Francesca Piemontese is an Italian living in France (Cannes) since 2015. She is a sommelier with the diploma Sommelier Caviste Ambassador in Gastronomie and diploma Sommelier Coach one. She is also a top wine-influencer on Instagram and TikTok.
Francesca’s life is divided between the role of Sommelier at a 5-star hotel on the Promenade de la Croisette and that of social media manager. When she is not with clients, iPads, statistics, and trends constantly keep her company.
Francesca Piemontese is from Verona, but now she lives and works on the French Riviera, in Cannes. Her passion for wine was actually born in Cannes, when the owner of the restaurant she worked for suggested she move to his wine shop.
At the time, Francesca knew absolutely nothing about wine, but working alongside the Maître Sommelier, day after day, she realized how complex and wonderful this world is. So she began taking private courses and later graduated from a Sommelier school in Antibes.

When the pandemic broke out: Francesca decided to roll up her sleeves and build a Wine Influencer persona for herself based not on pretty pictures, but on educational and entertaining short videos. When one of her videos goes viral and surpasses three million views, she realizes that being a wine influencer had to be her second job from then on.
