Italian Wine Hub
Loris Scagliarini’s interests lie at an unusual intersection between artistry and technicality. An early job at a Modenese winery eschewed the artisanal aspects of wine making, leaving Loris with the task of running their electronic grape-management system. Although moves and later a career as a photographer took him away from Italy, his heart stayed with the world of wine. Eventually, this gentle tug became an undeniable pull, leading Loris to found Italian Wine Hub, an online presence for his photography, writing, and—above all—love for Italian wines. His inventory, imported directly from small Italian wineries, includes 54 prize-winning varieties that can be shipped nearly anywhere in the United States, or gazed at longingly from the other side of a computer screen anywhere in the world.
