I met Antonio Sersale and his wife Carla Paravicini-Sersale 12 years ago. We had dinner with mutual friends at their hotel Le Sirenuse in Positano. Tamsin and I weren't staying at the hotel but by the end of the meal our bags had been surreptitiously moved from our accomodation to Le Sirenuse. Smooth. I have no doubt the Sersales are the best hosts in the world. They run the hotel with a very pure sort of generosity and casual charm, as if it were their family home (...which it once was). In 70 years the family have established what I think is one of the world's very few great hotels. Everything as it should be, never forced, never laboured, just natural. It's this temperament that I have always used as a yardstick when I look at my own business.
With the generous assistance of a very talented and passionate former colleague of mine we have been very lucky to access a limited amount of some extraordinary champagne just in time for the summer!
