Sommelier Stefano Berzi (best sommelier in Italy AIS 2021) curates a selection of great organic wines for us, selected from small excellent wineries from Sicily to Veneto, passing through Puglia, Campania and Lombardy.
Born in 1992, sommelier since 2013, Stefano Berzi is the current winner of the title of best sommelier in Italy AIS 2021 , Trentodoc award.
The son of a sommelier, he "breathed" wine from an early age, in the historic family tavern (Hosteria Del Vapore, in Bergamo). For Stefano Berzi, wine was an inevitable love story.
He firmly believes that the basis of this work is passion and that continuous study is the key to success for a sommelier . He interprets this profession at 360 degrees, even moving away from the pure environment of wine and service.
He works every day to find new wineries among the small excellent wine artisans, the ones he continually searches for. His curiosity leads him not only to practice a passionate and continuous study, but also to delve into grappas, spirits, various teas...
« Our choices, at the Hosteria del Vapore, are all in the direction of small artisans , to give a voice to those who have none or in any case have much less resonance than others. Deciding to work with small winemakers has a lot of meaning especially in a small town (the Hosteria is in Carrobbio degli Angeli, in the province of Bergamo) » .
