Letizia Patanè

Vitner

Tenuta di Trinoro
Tuscany, Italy

Born in 1987,  I have a degree in Science in International Communication, specialized in English and German languages.

Born and raised in a small town on Etna, Sicily, my family used to work some vineyards and produce wines for home consumption.

In 2011 I started working for Andrea Franchetti and I did realized how the viticulture has changed in the last 10 years on Etna. At the beginning my role at the winery was hospitality manager,  to welcome foreign people who want to visit the winery and learn more about Etna terroir. This was something absolutely new for the area and I managed to create a new business for the company which is growing day after day.

After 2 years I was promoted as Sales Manager for APAC and started to travel a lot in these countries. In 2015 I was asked to deal also with American market as well .
