Luciano Sperduto

B.A.R. Certified, Certified Sommelier/Asst Director of Food & Beverage
Luciano Sperduto, Assistant Director of Food & Beverage at the WDW Swan & Dolphin Hotel, grew up in an Italian household strong in tradition. As a child, Luciano spent early fall making wine with his parents and grandparents, and has had a strong passion for wine ever since. 
He became certified as a Sommelier in 2003 and Beverage Alcohol Certified in 2007 (the equivalent of a sommelier for spirits). His appreciation for Tequila developed as he learned more about food and tequila pairings. Luciano designed the TQU seminar to expose the versatility of this spirit and its' many styles. His goal is to break the mold of Tequila as being known only for its' sweet tequilas and more for the well-rounded, multifaceted tequila that it is.
