Hailey was born and raised in an exotic city called Urumqi, located in northwest China. After completing her bachelor's degree in bioengineering, she went to France to study plant biology in 2010.

In 2014, after finishing two-year wine cellar work in Paris, she returned to China and joined the leading French exporter Les Grand Chais de France to engage in customer maintenance and marketing analysis. During this period, she provided solid reliable market support for the company and improved customer loyalty through customer wine training, events, and promotion plans.

Maddalena was born in Schio - Vicenza, Italy. Since she was 15 years old, she has always been a world traveler. She started by joining her father on his business trips, then later she spent some time in China throughout University projects while studying Economics in Milan, and later as export manager at her family’s business. In 2015 she graduated in “International Master in Business Administration” at CUOA Business School in Vicenza: a personal and professional life-changing experience that brought her to meet her husband and up took the management of a challenging tourism project in southern Italy. When in 2017 her husband accepted a job offer in Michigan, she had to start from the ground up once again to build her new life in the US as a mother while holding on to her strong entrepreneurial ambitions. Following her passion for fine products, she founded her own business as “made in Italy lifestyle ambassador,” representing excellence in the wine and food industry. She also partnered with a Caviar import company during the pandemic time, which led her to work in the worst market conditions but with the opportunity to dive even more into the fine restaurant industry and community. She’s now focusing on wine as it has always been her greatest passion, attending the Champagne Master program at the Wine scholar guild and about to start WSET level 3.
Born and raised in Milan, Marta followed her mother’s footsteps into the shipping industry.
