I am honored and excited to be featured by the Miami Herald as a wine entrepreneur who is changing the way you enjoy wine.
As a wine entrepreneur who has been involved in the industry almost my entire life, I didn’t want to just create something. I wanted to create something great. I spent the first 10 years of my life in a wine tank with some of the most-prominent winemakers of our time. It was about artistic freedom and creativity and perseverance to make the best possible wine.
So I set out on my own venture to create the best possible wine at the best possible price.
My next goal was to bring California wine country to the people, whether it’s in Chicago; Flagstaff, Arizona; or Chattanooga, Tennessee. I began distributing to restaurants and retailers all over the country and opened up the business online, so it’s as easy as visiting our website to enjoy Bellacosa from your own home.
As a full-time wine entrepreneur and brand ambassador for Bellacosa, this business is essentially my life. That’s why its quality and the entire experience of enjoying Bellacosa is so vital to me. I spend 308+ days of the year on the road. Each of my stops around the country consists of about a dozen retailer and restaurant visits, demos and more. Then I’m off again. And even though it’s rigorous, to me Bellacosa is about the moment surrounding it…the personal touch.
Because I personally share my wine all over the country, servers can put it on the table and say “Try my buddy Dan’s wine” instead of just presenting another faceless brand.
Also, since I’m a firm believer that a $25 bottle of wine should drink like a $50 bottle and look like a $100 bottle, which resulted in my first release of Bellacosa, the wine was named the hottest brand of 2016 in Wine Industry Monthly, and was also featured in Forbes. So the word is definitely getting out fast about how beautiful Bellacosa is, and I’m ecstatic to hear the Miami Herald buzzing about it, too.
