Vinity Wine Company's intimate relationship with the world of Italian wine is rooted in the background of our company's President and driving force-Dino Capriotti. It was in his family's vineyard in the Medieval, coastal town of Offida, Italy that Dino Capriotti first developed his love for wines that express unique regional qualities. He carried this passion from his native Marche region with him throughout his first career as a successful restaurateur in Europe and later in the United States, carefully selecting the finest wines for patrons at prices that delighted. In 1986, Dino fell in love with the San Francisco Bay Area and decided to begin a new career in the wholesale wine industry. His great knowledge of wines made him an immediate success. Dino brings to Vinity Wine Company more than a decade of experience in the business, including eight years as owner and partner of a respected fine wine distributor. In Dino Capriotti, you will find one of our industry's most dynamic personalities-a trusted and reliable businessman who understands the demanding, ever-changing California marketplace. His enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge of fine wines is infectious-only one of the reasons why many wine professionals consider Dino to be one of the best in the business.
A medieval mystery appears silently from the heart of the historical centre of Offida (AP).
The 17th century caves and the spring water well placed in the basements of a typical building of the territory of Marches, already used for the conservation of excellent wine and food, are today the singular frame to the best products of the Picena tradition. The shady charm of the vaulted rooms that wind along the evocative stairs down to the crypts dug in the bare rock, becomes absolute comfort for the visitor who, in an atmosphere of constant pleasantness for the entire solar year (13°), lets himself be wrapped up by the illusion of a remote time though never lost. For all this and to celebrate together di"vine" events, "La Cantina nel Pozzo" is glad to host you for the entire summer time and, till late at night, during all the magical Offida’s Fridays.
