Meet Our Staff

We are more than employees, we really are a family. And like every family, we are all different! Some of us are Californian Cabernet Sauvignon lovers that love jammy blackberry and vanilla finish. And others others that dream about old Bordeaux. What do we have in comon? Passion. We all love wine, beer and spirits. We wake up every morning ready to learn, taste and explore more.

When you come to vinodivino you won't find just sales persons or cashiers. You will find people you can share your passion with - you can ask us questions, share your experiences. Our staff is the real difference at vinodivino, and we're not just saying that. Find who you met in stores or meet us for the first time online, we can't wait to talk to you!

What Raphael drinks:
Too many to list! Interesting and high quality is what counts. And I will never say no to Champagne! 
Lagers, wheat beers, IPAs, Pilsners for beers. Bourbon, Single Malts, Tequila, Mezcal, Vodka for spirits. My cocktail: I'd say Vodka Martini, though lately it's been the French 75

What Rodolfo drinks:
I drink largely wine with a rare beer and occasional spirit. I love Champagne, white Burgundy, white Bordeaux, Austrian whites, and have a weakness for northern Italian reds. For dessert, Tokaji, no doubt.
