Hi,
I am from Dartmouth, Massachusetts and have recently started VINIUM, an eco-conscious winery in Healdsburg CA with wine industry veteran Richard Catania and legendary winemaker George Bursick.

Small Batch Craft Wines for a Healthier Planet!

Because I love Southern California that is where we will launch VINIUM in May of 2014 at 20 Whole Foods Markets between Oxnard and San Diego.

I love travel, wine, cooking, music, skiing, sailing/boating/beaching and watching my 3 amazing children grow into young adults.

Besides Southern California I would say I like the Hawaiian and Virgin Islands best.
It's not that I don't like my native New England, it's just that I deserve better weather.

I believe life is short; we should reap all that we can and give back until it hurts.

I began my career in the fine wine business in 1987 building the respected brand Cardoza’s Wine & Spirits in SouthCoast MA.
Throughout the 23 years I was a strong community leader, hosting and sponsoring hundreds of events which helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for non-profit organizations including; Share the Harvest, Dartmouth Natural Resource Trust, Aquidneck Island Land Trust, The Lloyd Center for the Environment, Habitat for Humanity, The Zeiterion Performing Arts Center, SouthCoast Hospital Group, Child & Family Services, The Waterfront Historic Area League, The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, UMASS Dartmouth, Artworks! and The New Bedford Whaling Museum to name a few.

My new purpose is to offer the newest and most eco-sensitive ways to bring fine wine to a generation of wine drinkers who I believe will help spread our word to the rest of the world.
