Cantine Grotta del Sole - looking for West Coast distributor

domaine547 Nov 29, 2007 06:52 AM

Does anybody know who handles the Cantine Grotta del Sole wines on the west coast (LA in particular)? They have the wines at Mozza but they are not in any retail stores except on the east coast according to wine-searcher. Quick googles are turning up nothing...

        OK, this is what's going on:
        Jason/zin1953 is an older generation guy, he thinks in terms of fax.
        Maria is more in cyberspace mode.
        Now, Italians tend to check their email once a month or so, but only months not ending in "o", which leaves out quite a few.
        My suggestion: go with Jason. Or snailmail.

          The answer is ZigZagando...an importer based in SF...

            Good job, domaine547.

            On the east coast, the distributor is/was Wine Wave.
