#panizzipeople 12: Andrea Dei
What's your job at Panizzi?
I work in the cellar and I am a tractor driver.
What is the skill that those who do your job cannot absolutely lack?
Two very simple things: passion for life in the fields and love for open air.
What do you like the most about your work?
Tasting the wine when it is finally ready. It is the moment when we assess the result of our long work and we understand if our efforts have been rewarded!
What did you do before working at Panizzi?
I worked as a carpenter in a shop for six years. I made a sharp change. But in both cases you work very hard with the goal of being rewarded for a job well done.
What do you do in your free time? What are your passions?
I work in the fields during the day, but I have a second life at night. I have a great passion for nightlife so I use my free time to live it all the way. I'm a PR manager for a disco here in the area, I organize events and work occasionally as a barman in Poggibonsi, especially during the summer season. Being surrounded with people is very important for me: here in Panizzi I'm always in a group and in a team. I definitely am a team player.
What is your favorite Panizzi wine?
Vernaccia green label and Vigna Santa Margherita, excellent, light, easy to drink. Straight and easy for a great night out.
What is your favorite place at Panizzi?
Il Pino, a special place here in Santa Margherita. I am sure many among my workmates consider it their favourite place.
What is your favorite place in San Gimignano?
La Rocca. It is a place that brings back so many memories. The calm, tranquility and peace of this special spot are unbelievable and hold a very special place in my heart.
