Palmina is named in honor of Steve’s great friend. Like a grandmother to him, she taught Steve to love cooking, wine and the Italian lifestyle and was a spark in his life.
Paola was Palmina’s Americanized name. She was far more interested in having a good glass of wine each night,(or 2) than having something expensive of “fancy”...
The wines made under our Paola label are made in that same tradition. Blending varietals and even vintages to produce something that is easy to drink on a Tuesday night, good enough to share with friends and easy enough on the pocketbook to do it often!
