That’s me emulating David Bowie. ‘Changes’ was in Bowie’s 1971 album Hunky Dory.

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

(Turn and face the strain)
Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it
(Turn and face the strain)
Where’s your shame
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can’t trace time


The latest news for La Donna del Vino is a change in workplace as of the new financial year.

The final page has turned on the enjoyable chapter entitled, “La Donna del Vino does Enoteca Sileno”. Here I have had my biggest lesson on Italian wine as I journeyed from working in the restaurant, to the retail store, to the created position of Wine Marketing Coordinator. Here I shared my love of vino with customers, sommeliers, restaurateurs, wine reps and the people at Enoteca. The seed that started out in 2010 yearning to learn more about Italian wine was truly nurtured. After all the great times, I probably could not thank Enoteca enough for all the opportunities and moments they have offered me. 

So why on earth would I leave? As some of you may know, I am a believer of destino. As such, when I was approached with the opportunity to take on the new Wine Manager role at King & Godfree, I found it difficult to say no. This is an exciting project and I am really looking forward to being a part of a new family and culture. Full steam ahead!

This is where you will find me from now on. 

Ci vediamo lì, amici.
