Roberto Nicchitta

Cellar Manager

Roberto was raised in Staines, just west of London, and began working in the drinks trade at 18 at Threshers. A talented musician, he completed a music degree in 2010. He then returned to London and spent three years with French wine merchant Nicolas, where he developed a love of wine and a keen interest in spirits. The Whisky Exchange was his next stop; here he discovered the world of old and rare spirits with a particular focus on whisky and Cognac. Roberto joined Whisky.Auction in 2016.
