One of five sisters, Natalie Oliveros was born in Northern New York. Although American born and bred, her Calabrese “Nonna” gave an Italian heritage and education to the family, which exposed Natalie - at an early age - to “basement winemaking” with her parents.
In the early 2000s, parallel to her adult entertainment career, she was introduced to Roberto Cipresso, wine consultant and co-owner of La Fiorita. Natalie and Roberto started to collaborate on a series of Italian wines – “Sogno”, which translates as “dream”.
Today, Natalie is the main Owner of La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino. She leads a team that includes Luigi Peroni, the Estate Manager (disciple of La Fiorita for 20 years), Vincenzo Pirrone, the talented young wine maker, Michele Marini the warehouse Manager and François Colas Marketing Director.
Natalie Oliveros “tailors” wines showcasing various facets of the Sangiovese grape respecting the appellation of Brunello Di Montalcino while revealing the diversity of soils.
More recently, she further stamped her mark in La Fiorita launching two new wines. One Brunello from parcel selection: “Fiore di NO” and a concrete Egg fermented Rosé “Ninfalia”.
