I played Rugby for 25 years, but I quickly realised that I could give my best in the third half; after living for years between San Sebastian and London I returned to Rome in 2012 and realised my dream with ApeWine Distribuzione, of which Apewineboxes.com is the online shop. My goal has always been to discover talented artisanal winemakers around the world and to amaze my client in proposing them. Mission accomplished!!!

I started writing about spirits in 2011, first with my personal project, WhiskySucks.com then with one of the world's leading cigar magazines, CigarsLover.com. Since early 2019 I decided to specialize in wine by opening an Instagram profile linked to a website updating with my drinks and numerous winery visits, combining technical focus and interviews with wineries and industry professionals: www.Iobevotanto.it The geographical proximity to the Langhe facilitates my visits to this area and my passion for Nebbiolo. IOBEVOTANTO lives not only on Nebbiolo but on everything that comes out of the vineyard: I increasingly appreciate white wines and sparkling wines, with a good dose of Bolgheri and Collio to support them. I also really love craft beer.
Hi, I'm Elsa,
I graduated in CTF and only later discovered my passion for wine by becoming an Ais sommelier.
Driven by the thirst for knowledge and curiosity I never stop studying and deepening. Every moment is useful to discover something more about the world of wine and its history ... I'm sure a lifetime won't be enough, but I won't give up!
