Arquilla’s very own Maurizio Ugge has been awarded one of the most sought after international foodie awards; Gli Oscar della cucina Italiana nel mondo – the Italian Cuisine Worldwide Awards, commonly referred to as the 'Oscars' of the Italian cuisine world.
Maurizio was awarded his ‘Oscar’ for his continued effort in bringing the most divine Italian wines into the Australian market, an effort which has significantly contributed to our love affair with Italian wines.
After moving to Australia in 1993, Maurizio was quickly recognised locally as an expert in the Italian food and wine industry and Arquilla wines are now served at an extensive range of fine-dining eateries across Australia.
Maurizio’s exceptional contribution to Italian wine in the Australian market has been deemed worthy of the award by an international jury of professionals who also awarded international sensations Jamie Oliver and Roland Schuller for their ongoing commitment to Italian cuisine.
Arquilla is extremely proud of Maurizio and congratulate him on this well-deserved award.
