“Having been lucky enough to travel around the world and throughout Italy, I would be hard-pressed to find a more passionate, dynamic, fun & talented person than Brittany Carlisi. Her knowledge and contacts on Mount Etna helped make Sip Trip, my travel documentary, complete. From granita to wine, Brittany KNOWS who to meet and where to eat!”
Jeff Porter– Sommelier & Host of Sip Trip
Based on my experience working in restaurants, wholesale distribution, and as a supplier of Italian wine, my company provides wine trade consulting for Italian wine producers looking for representation in the USA and for distributors and importers worldwide looking for Italian wineries to represent.
I am an ambassador in the US market for a selection of artisan Italian wineries. I work independently with importers and distributors to oversee sales and marketing, education, events, and product placement.
Being raised in a family of restaurateur-entertainers has its benefits. After years of working in restaurants and catering, I am adept at organizing enogastronomic events in the USA and Italy.
I collaborate with friends and partners in the food and wine industry to organize tastings and events that present Italian cuisine and culture in exciting and engaging ways.
I can be hired as a sommelier and educator for wine events. I also curate wine dinners and private events with talented chefs who design authentic and innovative menus for the optimal dining experience.
Mount Etna, or simply Etna,
In the heart of Randazzo, the red wine producing zone of Mount Etna, there is a beautiful, family-owned “agriturismo” Bed and Breakfast located on a farm with enchanting walking paths, a few friendly farm animals, and options varying from rooms to small apartments for longer stays. Breakfast is included, and selection will change with the seasons, serving fruit, marmalade, and local, traditional delicacies produced on the farm.
Your door-to-door driving services can be arranged in a Mercedes Class V Vehicle for a day visiting the wineries, and your entire visit around Sicily from airport pick up to drop off. The drivers are extremely knowledgeable about the territory and make great guides on the road.

Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.
