Eleonora is a fellow Instagram Wineo. I usually reach out to the women in this series but Eleonora is ahead of the game.
Writer, Wineo & IG star – Eleonora Galimberti
How did you get started in the wine industry? Up until three years ago I worked in the high fashion industry for a famous made in Italy designer. I was thrilled to be part of that magical world but then I realized that I needed something more realistic, exciting and less ‘ephemeral’. So I decided to quit the job (I had a xed-term contract and a good salary!) and go back to university. I attended the Master in Food & Beverage Management at the Bocconi Business School in Milan (Italy) and at the same time I was studying hard to become a Sommelier. The passion for wine, great food and the desire to know how to combine them and enhance each other has always been within me, in my DNA: my mother was born in Tuscany and I have Brunello di Montalcino in my veins. Perhaps I was predestined to all this but I discovered it little by little!
What made you start up your very successful and fun Instagram account? I have a degree in Communication and after the F&B Management specialization I had the opportunity to work in the Italian branch of a famous Champagne House as marketing and communication manager. Among the tasks I was involved with, I had to develop social media, brand promotion and online communication. I really liked it and I started to get excited about these activities so much that, when the contract ended, I decided to dedicate all myself to a new professional project – Enogallery – that is to communicate the culture and excellence of wine in the world as an “expression of art” (this is why -gallery) with an innovative style open to young generations, social media and digital marketing. Today I’m very happy to work with several wine and hospitality companies, but also publishers, newspapers, magazines.
What advice do you have for other women wanting to get into the wine world? The woman is emerging more and more in the world of wine, which until a few years ago was the prerogative of a purely male elite. And this is fantastic! Like many other women of wine, I support the importance of a female share in this world. To those who like me want to turn their passion into a profession I recommend to always be curious, eager to learn new things every day, read, experiment, innovate to re ne their skills, and especially travel everywhere: to get the most authentic and genuine knowledge you have to meet the people who made history, interact and deeply dive into culture.
Who is inspiring you right now? Contemporary women who play a role in wine entrepreneurship are a great source of inspiration. They can be winemakers, communication managers, winemakers, sommeliers, journalists: I know many examples of women who with passion and determination have been able to establish themselves and enhance the role of the woman in this industry. I think it’s essential to have positive models to be inspired by, that’s not a limit to our personality
but a motivation to get to know ourselves better, to focus our goals and to build our own path. One day I would like to join an international community of women of wine, to bring together strong and in uential women for networking, sharing and inspiration.
What’s your favorite wine to drink right now? It would be easy to say Champagne: it is beautiful with everything! As you’ve read, I love experimenting because not a whole life is enough to try all the wines, but obviously I have my own preferences. In this hot season (summer is approaching in Italy) I enjoy semi-aromatic whites like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (there is much more variety than ever before and quality seems on an unstoppable upward curve), German kabinett Riesling and lightly oaked Chardonnays like Chablis. On cooler evenings I open a good medium-bodied red. To stay in Italy, I recommend to try some styles less famous than others: Pinot Noir (Alto Adige), Lacrima di Morro d’Alba (Marche), Cannonau (Sardinia), Valpolicella Ripasso (Veneto), Primitivo aka Zinfandel (Apulia). I could really write a book about my favorite wines! You can follow Eleonora on Instagram @Enozioni.
