Quote: Steve, you have the kind of Burgundies that get people hooked on Great Burgundy! by Ken Johnson, General Manager, Sarasota Yacht Club
  • Authentic and Genuine

    Steve has lived in Burgundy on and off since 1979. He has become personal friends with the winemakers over the years. He is “family” in Burgundy. Experience the true Burgundy with the man they call the “Burgundy Ambassador”.

  • Benefits to Dealing with Us

    Steve does not work through agents. He deals personally with his winemaker friends. Wine comes directly from the private cellars of the winemakers to Steve’s climate-controlled warehouse in NC. Steve eliminates all the other middlemen. Therefore, people buy these quality wines at lower prices.

    Benefits to Dealing with Us

  • Competence and Recognized Excellence

    Steve is not only a Sommelier, but he is internationally recognized as an “expert” in Burgundy. He is downright passionate about these exclusive wines and also about the very special families who grow the grapes and make the wines.

    Competence and Recognized Excellence

  • The Personal Touch

    Steve and Gloria personally take care of distributors, restaurants, and wine shops. There are no sales people and no employees. This business is truly a family affair. Our family will assist you in selecting these special wines from our winemaker friends.

    The Personal Touch

  • The Pignatiello Difference

    Others sell wine – mostly the highly marketed, widely available wines. Steve’s winemaker friends give him their personal wines. These are the quality wines that the families reserve for themselves. Steve’s portfolio is like having access to the private cellars of some of France’s top winemakers.
