The old saying 'you can take the boy out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the boy' rings true for Rocco Esposito. The talented sommelier is back in the North East with his family after two years working as wine director at one of Melbourne’s acclaimed restaurants, Vue de Monde headed by Shannon Bennett.

'We have an affinity with North East Victoria, it’s a very special place,' says Esposito, who is now hospitality manager at Wagunyah’s All Saints Estate.
