Meet our producers
We only offer premium canned wines from producers we know and respect around the world. And we’d love you to introduce you to them. Meet our producers Scarpetta and West+Wilder.
Years ago our travels took us the north eastern Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. A passion for creating wines from this unique region led us to expanding into all of Italy. True to Italian traditions, part of everyday meals include drinking good wine, great conversation, and little moments of celebration. Scarpetta was created as an homage to this lifestyle. Scarpetta refers to a small piece of bread used to soak up the last bit of delicious sauce on your plate that you can’t possibly leave behind.
Italy is as diverse in its wines as it is in its cuisine. Which is why we’ve developed a passion for combining regional wines with provincial recipes. There’s an old food and wine pairing motto that says, “if it grows together, it goes together.” Our hope is that Scarpetta wines will bring this story of the Italian table to life. Our wines are meant to be enjoyed with good food, but more importantly shared — from special occasions to everyday adventures.
Whether you’re exploring Italy or trying a new recipe in the kitchen, your own discovery of inspiration awaits. Buon appetito!
West + Wilder
WEST + WILDER is a project by long-time Sonoma friends Matthew Allan and Kenny Rochford.
Matt has always worked in and around marketing. It was a dalliance with the wine business years ago that lead to this friendship. Frequently responsible for creating and launching products, Matt has worked extensively with clean tech businesses, both in startup and IPO stages. The opportunity to work with a good friend, and with wine again made Matt smile.
Kenny has always worked with wine. Beginning with a fine wine shop while at university, he’s worked wine production, marketing and general management roles with California wineries. Most recently, he launched the brand CIRQ and spearheaded sales and marketing for Pinot noir heroes Kosta Browne. No stranger to the world of highly allocated brands, he was drawn to a project that brought that same level of focus and quality to something more widely available and fun. When not obsessing on wine he spends his time cooking and encouraging people to eat more marmalade.
Their wine company is called John Curtis & Sons after their fathers and their sons – www.johncurtisandsons.com
