“I believe that you’re a direct result of the people that you get in contact with. Every single thing that I’ve done in my life happened to be with people that had some sort of state of mind to be an entrepreneur.”

Born in Verona, Italy, Augusto spent his summers making wine on his family’s farm and his weekends honing classic cooking preparations at a neighborhood pizzeria. He became a restaurateur at age 22, and has been the Corporate Wine Director for Urban Kitchen Group in San Diego for the last 8 years. Here, we talk the ins and outs of risotto, why hot/cold showers are the best, and the life of an entrepreneur.
