"Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it”

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
Bag In Box
The Greeks started drinking wine from a bag (wineskin) thousands of years ago. They also invented showers and democracy. Also things we are fans of.
In the Old Country when you order wine, it’s from a keg or cask and they sell it to you by the Liter (7 Glasses). Straight from the winery, which is why it's delicious and costs as much as a small coffee from Starbucks.
You’d find these glasses in a quaint, casual restaurant in Venice, where people stand, snack, socialize and drink wine. Damn that sounds nice.
Call us Old fashioned but drinking wine & playing cards is a hell of a time.
Great Grandma Pauline came over from Sicily in 1920.
Thank heavens she brought her Spaghetti & Meatball recipe.
In 1913 Great Grandfather Luigi left his village in Sicily to make a better life. He worked in the Steel Mill saving enough money to bring his family from Italy and go into business for himself. He, his wife Pauline, their 6 children and his older brother Charlie all lived in the same house, which doubled as a Grocery store/restaurant/bar. People came to drink wine, play cards, eat food, tell stories & buy live chickens. We built a brand that Pauline and Luigi would appreciate.
