Doctor Wine is not a blog but an authentic online magazine that deals with wine and related subjects. It is the brainchild and is run by Daniele Cernilli, who gave the magazine his nickname. He writes the articles together with a team of experts and wine-lovers (in the sense that they are both). We have dubbed this small band of wine lovers the Rat Pack in honor of that group of actors and entertainers who between the 1950s and the first half of the '60s dominated the American scene with their sold-out performances and outrageous behavior after them.
www.doctorwine.it is entirely bi-lingual (Italian-English) which makes it the first Italian web magazine dedicated to wine that gives an Italian perspective to a global public.
Every week we send those who register with us two Newsletters, one with the main articles of the week and the other offering readers 'a wine a day', from Monday through Friday. Doctor Wine can also be followed on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/doctorwine), on Twitter (@DoctorWine) or on our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/theDoctorwine). Starting in September 2013, we also began the Doctor Wine European Capitals Tour after ascertaining that foreign trade journalists and wine critics had a very relative if not limited knowledge of quality Italian wines, one which was almost exclusively focused on price and not necessarily on the quality and territorial characteristics of certain wines. The initiative offers b2b events for sector professionals with not only wine tastings but also informative seminars conducted by Daniele Cernilli.
Daniele Cernilli - Il Direttore
Simply The Doc, Editor-in-Chief. Daniele is a journalist who, after taking a Master’s Degree in Philosophy and teaching it along with history and literature, decided to make his love for great food and wine his profession. Daniele is a regular contributor to Italian newspapers, trade and consumer publications and has written a number of technical books on wine and wine tasting. He currently has a column on wine published in Corriere della Sera's weekly Sette and is managing editor at the magazine Spirito di Vino. His books include, among others, Memorie di un degustatore di vini (Memories of a Wine Taster - Einaudi 2006), a chronicle-memoir of his first 25 years as a taster with this opinions on many Italian and foreign wines, while his latest book is Vitigni del Mondo (World Wine Grapes – La Conchiglia 2012), written in collaboration with Dario Cappelloni, which is the most complete catalog of wine grapes ever published in Italy. In 1986, he co-founded Gambero Rosso magazine that (together with Slow Food) began to annually publish an Italian Wine Guide, which he oversaw for more than 24 editions. He later became the magazine's editor-in-chief as well as a television celebrity and general manager of Gambero Rosso's 24 hour-a-day TV channel. Daniele continues to be interviewed frequently in the Italian media as an expert on wine and teaches professional courses at the Città del Gusto (Taste City) as well as wine tasting and sensory analysis for the Italian Sommeliers’ Association (AIS). He has won several prizes for his contribution to wine culture, including the Targa d’Oro (Gold Plague) from the Italian Association of Wine Technicians, and Decanter Magazine has included him among its “50 Most Influential People in the Wine World”.
Stefania Vinciguerra - Il Caporedattore
Chief editor at Doctor Wine but above all a professional journalist for over 20 years with vast and varied experience. She first got involved in the world of wine 30 years ago when she took a course offered by the Italian Sommeliers' Association (AIS), where one of the experts was none other than Daniele Cernilli. She later embarked on a double career focusing on both journalism (becoming almost from the start head editor of the monthly Pane & Vino and, most recently, head editor at Euposìa) and public relations, even in areas totally different from wine (most importantly as media and communications director for the Giro d'Italia and other cycling events linked with the sport newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport). The fact that she is passionate and expert about wine and food goes without saying.
