Alicia Lini

Alicia Lini is a fourth-generation Italian winemaker who hails from a family of distinguished Lambrusco producers from Reggio-Emilia. She is the international spokesperson for her family's brand Lini910. Alicia is an expert on the wine and cuisine of Emilia-Romagna.


Alicia Lini comes from a long line of Italian winemakers. After studying entrepreneurial management in the United Kingdom, she returned to Reggio-Emilia in 2002 to work in her family's century-old wine and balsamic vinegar business. As the international spokesperson for Lini910, Alicia has spent over a decade educating the public about the traditional champagne method her family uses to produce their renowned dry sparkling wine. Her focus has been to rehabilitate the world's image of Lambrusco as a cheap, mass-produced sweet sparkling beverage. For Alicia, true Lambrusco is an artisanal product made to compliment the region's finest prosciutto and cheeses, and rich pasta and risotto dishes.


Alicia attended business school in the United Kingdom, studying entrepreneurial management.
