About Zonin:

With its close ties to the land for the past seven generations, the Zonin family heads the largest private vine growing and winemaking company in Italy (and one of the most important in Europe as well.)

The heart of the company is located in Gambellara, in the province of Vicenza, an oasis of lush green hills, meticulously arranged vineyards, and also the ancestral home of the Zonin family.

Today the Zonin family honor their family’s historical passion for the vineyard, the sine qua non for producing high-quality wines, by including “Vintners since 1821” on their logo.

About Our Host: 

 Francesco Rabellino was born in Ventimiglia, on the Italian Riviera and raised between the rugged Ligurian shorelines and the gentle slopes of Dolcetto in the Langhe Region.  Francesco left his native country in his early 20ies and developed a strong multicultural background throughout his travels, becoming fluent in 5 languages

A true wine and food aficionado, Francesco has been a strong promoter in the US of his country’s traditions and of the Italian excellence for decades. Among other endeavors, Mr. Rabellino has been a restauranteur in NYC in the 1990’s, and his Ligurian restaurant “Cinque Terre” was awarded 2-stars from the New York Times.

Francesco has excelled in the wine business for 20 years, the past 11 of which with his current employer, Zonin USA. His position today is northeast division manager, overseeing all aspects of business development in NY and the northeast region.

Host Chris Ferraro

About B&G

It was in 1725 that Irishman Thomas Barton settled in Bordeaux to start his company, which is today the city’s oldest winehouse still in activity… His grandson Hugh teamed up with Frenchman Daniel Guestier and in 1802 their partnership became official. From the Chartrons area in the center of Bordeaux, barrels and bottles were loaded on board of ships that sailed via the Garonne river to numerous countries, starting with Ireland, England, Holland and the USA to reach over 130 countries at present.
