I’m Riikka Sukula, a wine and hospitality Jackie-of-all-trades. I love new business and new concept development. My path has taken me from restaurant concept developer to restaurateur to Italian wine importer to viticulturists. From entrepreneur to a five-year stint restoring a historical area winery to my daily duties in my family businesses as viticulturist, consultant, and entrepreneur, my experience and passions run deep.
