Meet the team
As sommeliers working in the hospitality business for many years, our passion is to give people the best experience and service and at the same time share our knowledge about wine. Therefore the idea of having a wine import had been growing for a while between the three of us. That’s why we teamed up and created ViaVino.
Our mission is to provide guidance about Italian wine and give people the possibility to taste more unique and rare wines. The wines we select are from family wineries that produce high-quality wine with traditional Italian varieties.
We hope you will follow us on our journey.
