OUR STORY

Tommaso and Carly met, in 2015, while working together at a winery in Napa Valley.  

With their shared passion and love for Italian wine, food and culture they decided to embark on a year adventure tasting their way across Italy.  While doing so, they sipped, drank, and savored hundreds of amazing and noteworthy wines made exclusively from indigenous Italian grape varieties.  Soon after, they discovered that these wines were not available anywhere in the United States and they imagined the joy of bringing them to you!

OUR MISSION

Blending their California and Italian roots, wine expertise and passion for wine, together they created Bravino to bring uncommon, unfamiliar, yet amazing Italian wines to YOUR GLASS!
