Representing the 6th generation of Noninos to join the family business, Francesca hopes to encourage Nonino’s digital audience to learn more about the company’s latest projects as well as educate new consumers on Nonino’s category changing distillation process. Francesca developed her passion for the family business from an early age in hopes to one day follow in her mother’s (Cristina Nonino) footsteps.
Her first role in the family business was a result of gaining her bartending certification right after college, allowing her to join the family business as the Nonino Global Brand Ambassador. As an ambassador, Francesca was in charge of sharing the Nonino family philosophy all over the world in countries such as Spain, Germany, and China while learning (when in Italy) the art of distilling from her grandparents, Benito and Giannola Nonino.
Francesca’s training in the art of distillation using a 100% artisanal method founded by the Nonino family generations ago, continues today as it’s the fundamental passage that all Nonino generations before her have also experienced, like her mother and aunts, Antonella and Elisabetta Nonino. Currently Francesca has graduated from Level 1 and Level 2 of the Italian Sommelier Program and looks forward to taking it to the next level in 2019.
