Emilio was born in Seville, a city where tapas, wine and the hospitality industry have a massive impact in everyday lives. He grew up in a family where home cooking is a traditional heritage passed from one generation to another, where travelling and trying different wines and cooking styles were the most celebrated family moments. In 2014, Emilio moved to Bristol and decided to make hospitality his life career, working in different Bristol indies. He then crossed paths with Dom and the rest of the Bianchis group team. Their shared love for food and wine did the rest.
