I came to Rome, Italy
in 1999 for “an experience” after graduating from Penn State University. The plan was to stay a year before moving back to my hometown near Philadelphia.
Fast track to today, I never left Italy and I continue living that
experience. Married to Italian wine and olive oil producer, we moved to the
Castelli Romani, my husband’s birthplace, in 2015. Based in Genzano di Roma with the family
vineyards in Ariccia, we couldn’t be happier living here, in the peaceful Roman
outskirts. My husband and I launched our wine label, Jacobini Wine in 2022, and are in the midsts restoring a historic 16th century water mill and farmhouse located on our vineyards for wine tastings and events.
