Enrico Chioccioli Altadonna

Enrico Chioccioli Altadonna

Second son of the famous Enologist Stefano Chioccioli, Lawyer and Master Distiller, Enrico has abandoned his legal career to pursue his passion for distillation. After graduating with honors in Law at the Catholic University of Milan, he left for the U.S. to go to work for a Bourbon distillery in Brooklyn, NY.

“It was the first time in my life I was face to face with an still, an extraordinary experience made in contact with extraordinary people, to whom I will always be grateful and of which I still treasure an indelible memory”.

Back in Italy, his passion led him to Conegliano at the E. Cerletti Wine School, where he studied the art of distillation and became a Master Distiller.Immediately afterwards he decided to cross the Alps to go to study enology at the University of Bordeaux, the famous I.S.V.V., where he obtained the D.U.I.O. diploma in oenology.

 

Shortly thereafter, he formally becomes a lawyer in Florence but his stay does not last long because he leaves again for France’s region of Cognac for another distilling experience:

“Working in 3 different distilleries, in the land of one of the most famous spirit in the world, was a dream come true; I finally managed to combine the two passions that always been part of my life: wine and distillation!”

 

This experience marks him irreversibly and pushes him to hang up the lawyer’s suit to devote himself completely to his personal project: the creation of Winestillery! So, after long years of study and waiting, he succeeds in opening with his family and his brother the first and only independent craft distillery of the Chianti Classico region.
