Julia Zemiro as host of Opera in the Vineyards 2009 - what can I say... this lady has it all, she's brilliant, clever, witty and totally stunning. She was an absolute professional and a great pleasure to work with. I really hope we can work together again very soon!
The dinner was a great success due, in no small measure, to Julia's witty and entertaining performance as MC. It was a real pleasure to work with her.
