Wine Education Through Entertainment

Mattia Antonio Cianca

Born and raised in Rome, Mattia found himself named Best Sommelier of Australia in 2017, after having chosen to move there in 2008. He says he discovered a passion for wine in 2011 while working in Perth, which led him to throw himself wholeheartedly into this stimulating universe, and wine became his professional priority.

In 2013, he moved to Melbourne to study and to work at Attica restaurant for four years, which changed his career for good. He vowed to study and deepen his knowledge, and he has done just that. Mattia also worked as an associate sommelier at one of the country’s best restaurants, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal; he left in July 2018 to travel and to collaborate with Alexander Gusto Antico in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.

In October 2019 he also won the title of Best Sommelier of Italy and he is getting ready for the prestigious Master Sommelier exam while providing consulting services between France and Italy.
