About Angela SaltafuoriI was born in Umbria near Perugia, and the age of six my family moved to Ostia near Rome and I spent my younger years there. Our family passed every summer in Tuscany near Sienna because my parents are from Radicondoli. I studied history and philosophy at La Sapienza University in Rome and then I moved with my family to Tuscany where I entered the tourism industry as a tour guide. In 2005, I set up my own company, TuscanyTourTime
snc., based in Florence, and began offering minibus tours of the Tuscan wine territories.
Quite early on, I realised that wine was my passion. To give structure to the extensive experience I had gained visiting vineyards and tasting wines over the years, I studied for the sommelier qualifications recognised by the Province of Florence. I passed the first level exams in 2008, the second level in 2009 and the third and highest level in 2010.
