Maurizio Di Franco:About the owner
Maurizio was raised in Phoenix, Arizona by Italian-born parents. He spent much of his youth working in his family’s restaurant, which first opened his eyes to the traditional foods of Italy and the wines that they pair so perfectly with. At university, he studied Italian language and culture and it was during a semester abroad in Florence when he fell in love with the Italian way of life and one Italian in particular: his wife, Paola. In 2009, he moved to Rome to study wine and food and he never left. Having completed his sommelier education with the Italian Sommelier Association (AIS), he went on to work with Hande Leimer at VinoRoma, until taking over the company in 2021. He now teaches wine courses and leads tastings and tours for the company. When not traveling to visit the country’s many winemaking areas, he’s most often found around the table with friends and family sharing a good meal along with a great natural wine, craft beer, or a well-made cocktail.
