Jacopo Mazzeo


Jacopo Mazzeo can’t recall what kick-started his wild passion for beer and wine, but he’s sure in 2004 he was already supporting his studies at the University of Bologna by working with them. He finally realised that the drinks industry was his true love after his madness brought him to complete a PhD in musicology at the University of Southampton.

Before he landed at Imbibe in 2018, he was head sommelier at The Pig Hotel in the New Forest. He is a professional beer sommelier and in 2016 he was awarded Young Beer Writer of the Year by the British Guild of Beer Writers. Find him on https://twitter.com/jacopo_mazzeo?lang=en
