Speaker Bio
Sara Maule grew up in the wine industry at the side of her father, Casimiro Maule, the winemaker for the renowned Nino Negri for over 45 years.
She began her professional experience early, accompanying her father in his travels around the world, promoting, educating and building awareness of Nino Negri and Valtellina outside Italy. In addition, she followed her passion for gastronomy and attended the University of Gastronomic Sciences (Pollenzo di Bra, Cuneo, Piemonte).
After her graduation, Sara interned at Frederick Wildman in New York to begin her education in the American wine business before returning to Milano to pursue a Master Degree in Marketing and Communications from Bocconi University (Milan, Lombardy) in May 2013. Part of her studies included a 10 month internship at Publicis, an International Communications Agency.
Following her graduation, Sara became a Brand Ambassador for Nino Negri, working in sales and marketing in the USA to grow the profile and sales of Nino Negri in the USA.
Sara returned to Italy in 2014 to take on an expanded role as the international
brand ambassador for GIV’s top estates, including Re Manfredi, Nino Negri, San Castello Monaci and Rapitalà. She honed her skills, representing this brand in all the major markets of the world, sharing quality, story and tradition of multiple estates that each had their own unique opportunities and challenges. In addition, she studied and passed the WSET Level 3 with honors during this period.
Following her dream to come back to the US, Sara is now an Italian Brand Manager for Frederick Wildman, managing the jewel estates in Wildman’s Italian portfolio.
