Mirco Tarducci, Group Beverage Manager, Steves (WA Committee)
|I became a Committee member to:
I joined the committee to help existing and aspiring young wine professionals develop their skills and learn their craft in a friendly, inclusive, positive environment, and to share my passion for this industry. Hospitality has changed in the past decade and is becoming more inclusive but still needs a lot of work.
|My background is:
I grew up in Italy and arrived in Australia in 2012 where I have spent the last 10 years (with a break of 2 years while I was in Macao). I started in hospitality while studying like many others do, just to realise how much I love this industry.I discovered a passion for wine in 2013 and enrolled in WSET Level 2 and haven’t looked back since. I’ve passed WSET Level 3 and Court of Master Sommelier Certified and am currently preparing for my Advanced and ASI certification. I always strive to learn more.The highlight of my career was winning the Ruinart Challenge for Hong Kong and Macao in 2019.
|One thing people may not know about me is…
I keep my shirts arranged by colour in the closet. From white all the way to black.
|The motto I live by is:
Don’t be afraid of trying. Good days make you happy, bad ones give you experience.
|My dream indulgence would be:
To open a bottle of Monfortino with my grandfather, who is the person I inherited my wine passion from and who loves Piedmont wines.
|What I enjoy most about being a part of the wine industry is …
The connection we can establish with people through the passion for wine.
