Founder and CEO
I was born and raised in Italy, and eventually studied in France so I grew up drinking pretty good wines, isn't this enough credential? ;-)
Jokes aside, I owe most of my winemaking knowledge from my talented wife Jordan and I keep learning from my clients because when I am presented a challenge I strive to find a solution and in the process I gain experience.
I have been 16 years in the Wine Industry and worked on all aspects of it.
I started this company in 2010 when I moved my family to the Central Coast. I am proud of the brands I represent from Italy and France because they make great products from the two countries I grew up in.
Fourteen years ago i moved to the pleasant sunny central coast of California to escape the bitter weather of the central U.S. and "try something new." The moment i laid eyes on the vine covered hills and valleys i developed a fascination for the art of winemaking.
Now after 10 years in the business I have developed an appreciation for the blood, sweat, and tears that go into crafting a fine bottle of wine.
Having worked under many different winemakers with a variety of approaches to the artform, including both large scale and small boutique environments from grape to bottle; I feel well equipped to meet your winemaking needs although aren't we all in the never ending process of learning?...
See you soon!
