Bolognese Wines from Federico Orsi.
Federico Orsi.


Federico Orsi was born in Bologna, but grew up in Brazil. After returning to Italy in his late teens to study business, he began working as a consultant while planning to earn his MBA. Though poised for the corporate life, the sale of a local Bolognese winery would forever change the course of his life.


This interview with Federico Orsi took place over a Facetime exchange in February, 2017.
