“Few companies successfully play in both the import and distribution businesses like Winebow,” writes veteran wine industry reporter Laura Pelner for Market Watch this month.
“The Virginia-based company is a leader for fine wine and spirits importation and distribution, representing 1,200 producer partners in 20 states and covering 70% of the country’s wine consumption, with revenues totaling $770 million a year. Winebow simultaneously juggles the complexities of multi-state distribution and the dynamics of importing wine from 12 countries, creating a vibrant platform for its supplier partners. The company has changed immensely over the course of its nearly 40-year history, becoming a bicoastal wholesaler and rebranding itself to unify its many different parts under one name. Through it all, a commitment to quality and culture has remained intact, putting Winebow in a unique space that’s hard to match.”

The Lini winery couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the Winebow family. It’s a new and exciting chapter for the estate, which spans four generations of the Lini family.
Congratulations to our friends and partners at Winebow!
Jaynes Gastropub helped us get the party started when we held a Lini Lambrusco garden party in San Diego back in July of this year.
In the meantime, a lot of folks have inquired as to where they can find the wines for purchase.
We were thrilled to learn that they are now available retail and by-the-glass at San Diego’s hippest wine shop, Vino Carta (in Little Italy in downtown San Diego).
San Diego’s fine wine scene has exploded over the last couple of years. We are so proud to be part of it!
Thank you, Vino Carta! We’ll come out and see you early next year.

As the Italian food and wine renaissance continues to sweep the world, no corner of the earth is immune to its temptations!
Ever since Eataly opened on the west side of Los Angeles in late 2017, it’s become the epicenter of the Italian food and wine scene in the City of Angels, where there already was a very strong Italian gastronomic presence.
This weekend, the store — actually, it’s more like a campus of Italian food and wine — will be hosting a Prosciutto festival, a day-long event featuring the “King of Hams,” including tastings and pairings.

The great 19th-century Italian poet Giosuè Carducci posited that “God conceived Lambrusco to wash down the Prosciutto.” There was a reason for that: Lambrusco is the canonical pairing for the famous salt-cured pork thigh.
Once your done with your tastings in the Eataly food shop and court, pop over to its wine shop, Il Vino, where you’ll find a wide selection of Lini Lambrusco — the perfect pairing for one of Italy’s greatest foods.
Buon appetito! E buon prosciutto!
