Åsa Johansson is BKWine’s person in Italy. She lives in Florence since the early ’00s. She has a passion for all things Italian, so much so that she married an Italian and stayed in Florence after having come there to study political science.
Åsa has worked in the wine trade for some time before becoming fully involved in wine, food, travel and tourism with BKWine. She has a wine training from an Italian wine school, but she is also very knowledgeable about Italian food (and not least olive oil – that her husband works with).
She is also an occasional contributor to travel and life style magazines.
Britt & Per’s take on Åsa: Even if Italian wine and food were terribly boring (which it isn’t, of course) it would be exciting when presented with Asa’s overflowing enthusiasm. Being a foreigner in the heartlands of Italy she can see it from the outside, with all it’s quirks and oddities. She understands everything (and can tell you) about La Famiglia and Sunday dinners…
