Claudia Manetta

Export Manager

Born in the historic town of Bergamo, Italy, Claudia has boundless admiration for the dynamic culture of her homeland. She developed a profound passion for art, literature and foreign languages early on and sought a career that would put these interests to good use. 

After obtaining her specialist degree in foreign languages and literatures from Università degli Studi di Bergamo, IT, Claudia worked as an interpreter in her native country. Her heightened ability to communicate paved the way to her becoming an export manager. Ready for a change of pace, she took a chance interview that introduced her to the world of wine. She joined La Marca Prosecco in 2008 and continues to manage sales for the brand across numerous countries.

“When I entered the wine industry, I discovered a world where passion, territory, and tradition all play a significant role,” Claudia said, “Our goal is to take these wonderful aspects of our unique region and make them known internationally.”

Over the years, Claudia has grown a deep appreciation for the art of winemaking parallel to her lifetime love of modern and contemporary art. In her free time, she enjoys exploring new cities with her husband, riding their motorbike and seizing the opportunity to taste local wines and food.
