In late 2007, Volio was started with a single pallet of wine from Poggerino, in the Chianti Classico region. The intent was to represent a small, family owned estate with unmatched passion, integrity and great customer service. The hope was to build a reputation for their wine based on quality, consistency, a sense of place and honest farming.
Today, the portfolio has grown to represent some of the great wines of the world and over 500 wines from Italy, France, Spain, the USA and South America. We are proud to collaborate with Kermit Lynch & Grapes of Spain, who we believe represent France & Spain with the same passion and drive for family-owned, "place" driven wines as Volio does from Italy. Volio is also fortunate to represent some of the great American wineries in business today, and we are fervent supporters of the "new guard" - young domestic winemakers hoping establish themselves in the same way our partners have done in Europe.
Most importantly, however, the guiding principles that our founder, Charles Lazzara, stood behind with a single winery in 2007 hold true today for each property in our portfolio.
Volio takes great pride in continuously fostering a culture of sales professionals that we believe constitute the most professional, educated, and customer service oriented individuals in the market today.
