Amanda Courtney

My name is Amanda Courtney and I am the owner of Amanda’s Wine Adventures. Born and raised in the United States, I now live and work in one of the most important Wine areas in Italy, and I would like to give you a real personal look at Italy through a wine Lover’s eyes. 

Since making my home here in Italy in 2011, I have traveled the country extensively discovering all of the specifics of Italian wine, food, and culture.

Gianni Albesano

Gianni is a local, grew up amongst the vines in a grape growing family. He also is a winemaker for one of Barbaresco’s most famous wineries. Where he has been working side by side for the past 18 years with some of the most talented people in the Langhe.

No one knows the Langhe and Monferrato better than Gianni. He loves his food and wine and is not afraid to travel great lengths to meet the people and see first hand how the finest products are made. Not only but he likes to eat them after:)
