Lorenzo Beltrame

Head Sommelier for Santo Mare Restaurant

Born and raised in an Italian region where the mountains stumble into the sea, I think of myself as a passionate explorer of cultures.
That is an innate attitude of mine, amplified by the environment I grew in: my family has a long-established restaurant in Italy, and since my early years I've been in contact with residents and tourists, each of them carrying a different background, experience, history, and this fascinates me now as it was then.

Both in my life and my work I can define myself goal-driven, and I like to plan for the long run for myself. My attitude towards life makes me believe that there is always something to learn from everyone: many times I feel, excuse my job-related pun, thirst for knowledge.
