Bonacquisti Wine Company
At Bonacquisti Wine Company, founder Paul Bonacquisti crafts traditional and contemporary varietals with a balance of Old-World techniques and modern technical understanding, a method that has produced award-winning wines. Following a family tradition of winemaking that spans three generations, Paul uses the skills passed down from his father, a first-generation Italian American, to craft wines such as the Vinny No Neck, a heavy sangiovese blend. Through extensive studies with the International Wine Guild, Paul used his experience as a strong foundation for technical learning. In addition to carrying certification as an executive sommelier, Paul works to educate customers about wines and dispel common myths about the origin of a red-wine headache and the likelihood of drinking a bottle with a genie trapped inside.
