Simone Roveda – June 8, 1988
Hi! I’m Simone and I’m a wine lover based in Novara, Italy.
I graduated in Engineering of Computing Systems at Politecnico Milano.
Curiosity, dynamism and determination are key characteristics that identify me. I started growing my passion for wine by travelling and visiting wineries. When I visit a new place, I try its typical food and wine. That combo is culture!
The goal was to create a community of wine users in which everyone will contribute to making it even great by suggesting the best wines, pairings and wineries! Wine is a wonderful and huge world in which you never stop learning.
I’ve always wanted to get new information about wine to give more precise suggestions to help wine lovers as nobody else can do. Wine knowledge is the basis for those who want to make it a profession. You have several responsibilities towards people that support you every day and companies that decide to invest in you. On my path, the first step was to become an AIS Sommelier while the latest has been to obtain WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines at the WSET School London.
Considered one of the pioneers for wine digital communication in Italy, today I help the wineries to improve their businesses. Content creation, strategy, and editorial planning are just some of the activities that I do as a digital consultant. In addition, I’m also a contributor for some wine magazines and judge in wine competitions.
Contributor of #nofilter (Positive Press, 2018) and speaker at wine2wine in 2017 and 2018 talking about wine digital communication. Author of the “Wine Smart” course, published on the Feel Class e-learning platform, in which I share strategies for expanding the wine business on the web.
Awarded Fortune Under 40 Wine.
