Mario started his career in hospitality in Italy before moving to the UK in 2008, when he continued in the same industry working for established brands such as Conrad and Waldorf Astoria, part of the luxury Hilton Worldwide portfolio and also with well-known chefs Michel Roux Jr. and the 2009 MasterChef winner Steve Groves at Roux at Parliament Square.
Mario’s passion for wines, and a great opportunity to look after London on trade for Sogrape UK (Sandeman ambassador), enabled him to move to the wine trade in 2016. He also worked with Liberty Wines during his time at Sogrape due to the distribution agreement between both companies.
In October 2017 he decided to take on a fantastic project at MMD as a London Sales Manager focussing on prestigious on-trade customers.
Mario really enjoys cooking and food experiences, both of which go hand in hand with exceptional wines! Outside work, Mario enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing sports and watching them.
