A wine shop where kindess, expertise, and wines are all best in class
“Ai 3 San Marchi” is not just a wine shop with very good wine of the house and selected bottles of Italian wines: it is a newly opened winery that became a reference in Venice from the very first day
The reason is very simple: it’s owner Maria Vianello, the first female sommelier in Venice.
Maria, who is well known in Venice for her 40 years of experience in the food and beverage industry, is the best innkeeper and adviser anyone could wish for.
That is because Maria, on the one hand, has an overwhelming personality and kindness and, on the other hand, she is an impressively experienced and “honoured” sommelier: Italian Sommelier Association’s “golden tastevin” badge, sabre master, beer-tasting diploma and spirits diploma, to name a few.
As Maria says, “I am always happy to listen and talk to those who enter my shop because I want to be there for others. I don’t even try to sell: I already know that when people need some wine, whether it is a wine of the house of a nice bottle for a present, they count on me”
So, if there is one person whose kindness and expertise you know you can count on when looking for the right wine for you or a friend, that surely is Maria.
