Eliza Pinta Kauce - All Things Wine In Oliviero Toscani Winery (Italy)
Years in the Industry:
16 years. I first got my hands in, and on, the wine business when I was just 13 years old. I sneaked into my father's Italian wine importing business in Latvia, and never looked back. By the age of 18 I would discuss the differences of Chianti Classico subzones instead of partying with my friends. Since then I have tried with all my heart to learn and educate about wine, fully immersing myself in all fields of the industry.
My Biggest Challenge To Wellness:
To maintain your sh*t together and find joy and happiness in life with a 24/7 schedule, that includes always being on the road (or on the phone, or in the field), never-ending tastings and dizzy events, is what I see as the biggest challenge.
How I Keep It Together To Stay Well:
I am indulging more of my time and energy to keep my mind rather than my body healthy. Of course, I am an active person who loves long walks and practices classical ballet. But I think that keeping our minds clear and bright is the best way to get through whatever the day brings. To read at least one non-wine related book a week, to learn new things, to embroider, practice your foreign language skills and bake a cake now and then, is definitely the way to go for me.
