During the past Christmas holidays me and my husband, Davide, spent 4 days in Greece flying from Naples to Athens. The plan at the beginning was to spend those days in the capital – for me it was the first time there and I was so very excited to explore the city and all the… Continue reading Nemea Wine Region: Greek Wine

But here I am, back to my blog! 🙂 I really want to write about this wine, which I really enjoyed the first time as well as the second time and now the third time I have… Continue reading Rosso di Montalcino 2015 – Tenuta le Potazzine
Finally I got some time to write a blog post I should have had written probably 1 month ago… Anyway, better late than never, right? On the 16th of August I was a speaker at the Data+Women meetup in London. I helped Emily Chen in the organisation of a Data+Women event turning it into (let’s say) Data+Women+Wine!… Continue reading Data Plus Women Go to the Vineyards!
After being in Langhe (Piedmont) last October (click here to read about my experience there), I could not miss the opportunity to visit Tuscany, another place to go to try some of the best Italian wines… Indeed, quite a different experience, first of all because it was very very warm (38-40 degrees).

I started to organise my bottles and cover the labels with kitchen/ food film and then I got the idea to catalogue them. A Google Sheet, that I can even share with boyfriend Davide, seemed perfect to me. I… Continue reading Tableau, Google Sheets and… my wine fridge!
A couple of weeks ago I was on holiday in Italy, Piedmont, Langhe. It was one of the best holidays of my life, really. The reason Davide and I went there, of course, is for the wines. Piedmont wines and, in particular, wines from this small wine region called Langhe are one of the best… Continue reading Langhe Nebbiolo 2014 -Enzo Boglietti
During my researches of wine datasets, it happened some months ago that I asked Andy Kriebel (@VizWizBI) if he knew where I could find cool wine data. He came back to me saying that our colleague Robin had something… And he actually sent me this picture: My first reaction was… “Oh my, is this a joke??”…… Continue reading Choose right: the best year of the best Spanish wines
