The Organiser: Dora
Dora and Piet met in Valencia and quickly realized that they shared a passion for both wine, their adopted city and events. Over that first glass of red they formed the concept of Vino Valencia and resolved to make their vision a reality, no matter how many bottles would be needed to fuel the creative process.
Dora Birindelli was born in Italy and she is a Graduate in Linguistic and Multimedia Communication and Publicity. Following a brief stint as Office Assistant for Advertising Company Mas Communication in Florence, she was promoted to Marketing Director, actively supporting the city theatres network.
Her desire to travel and enthusiasm took her to London in summer 2006, where she got a Master Degree in Events Marketing Management at London Metropolitan University; shortly after she started an internship with IMG Artists, one of the leading companies in the arts management business. This was a very satisfactiory period in her professional life, being directly involved in the organization and running of the Tuscan Sun Festival 2008, as Marketing and Logistic Assitant.
March 2009 saw her move to Valencia with the firm intention of putting her knowledge and experience to good use, while enjoying life in this vibrant and welcoming city.
While Piet stood at the birth of Vino Valencia, in August 2010 he returned to Beijing, China, which was his home for more than 10 years already since 1998.
