Marina Cvetic Masciarelli is a truly formidable businesswoman, highly respected in her field, not only in Abruzzo but nationally and internationally too. Born in 1967 she spent her childhood in her native Croatia as well as Austria and Germany.  Her travels formed her intellectual curiosity and her love of engaging with other cultures.  It was also whilst abroad that she met and subsequently married the Abruzzan winemaker Gianni Masciarelli, resulting in not only an extraordinarily successful business partnership but also three children, now also closely connected to the family businesses.  Dynamic and tenacious, she has built up a business empire spanning the wineries (the products of which are sold in more than 50 countries), the production of award-winning extra virgin olive oil, and the refurbishment of the Castello di Semivicoli, now a destination hotel of the highest quality set amongst her vineyards.  Traveling tirelessly, she has opened up markets for Masciarelli wines all over the world.
