Product Consultant

I’ve been working at the LCBO for

34 years, 10 as a Product Consultant.

Being of southern Italian descent,

wine has always been about family for

me. My love of wine began when my

brother and I would help my dad make

his wine. I was fascinated by the whole

process, and I’ll never forget picking up

the grapes in our 1968 Pontiac

Parisienne.As a PC, it all comes together

for me when I can give a customer that

perfect bottle of wine for their occasion.

I get great satisfaction passing on

what I’ve learned.”

FEUDI DEL VESCOVO TRE STELLE

AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE 2015

DOP, Basilicata, Italy

“My family is from southern Italy, so Aglianico

has always been a favourite of mine. Those

from Basilicata, such as this one, have a

robust, sleek style. This also has the tannin

and acidity to support ageing, as well as

rustic dark fruit and mineral notes that give

the wine brightness. I like to think of these

wines as

the everyman’s Barolo

LA ENCINA CENTENARIA OLD VINES

MONASTRELL 2014

DOC Alicante, Spain

(Vinessens)

“A new generation of winemakers in

Alicante have sparked great excitement in

the region with their adaptation of modern

winemaking techniques. They’re creating

unique, terroir-driven expressions that

are toasty, earthy and spicy. We’ve carried

other wines from Vinessens that have been

very successful, and

my customers are

always asking for more

.”
