Valentino Pusnava is one of the most well-known German wine bloggers, being a familiar face at all major wine events in Europe such as ProWein, VinItaly or MeranoWineFestival. He is WSET certified, and his background is in business with a strong focus on digital and e-commerce. The combination of technical and digital skills, makes him a “piece de resistance” in the wine industry.
His main goal and drive is the communication about wine in a very authentic way – and this is probably his major skill: telling people about wine and at the same time having fun while doing it! As Valentino says, “people need to be entertained”.
Valentino is based in Nürnberg, Germany, where he collaborates as a wine consultant with many famous wineries from Germany – especially the wine area of Franken – and Italy as well. He has also been recently inthronized as a Chevalier in L´Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne.
One of Valentino´s major projects were the collaboration with the winery Riffel from Rheinhessen. In 2019, they jointly created and released a limited-edition sparkling wine (less than 200 bottles) where the world of winemakers – Erik Riffel – met the world of the wine blogger – Valentino Pusnava. This was a one of a kind project in the modern era of the digitized wine industry in Germany.

During ProWein 2022, Valentino organized together with the ProWein team an amazing tour into the world of champagne. Together with international digital creators and journalists, they were visiting eight producers (wine growers and champagne houses) to discover their unique stories, their terroir, and their gorgeous wines, all together in a moment of conviviality. Champagne brought people together at the biggest wine trade fair in the world – ProWein. It was an incredible experience, full of emotion and positive thoughts. A moment that brought people together, a moment dedicated to champagne!
