Volio Imports is an importer of European fine wine. Our mission is to bring the consumer experience closer to the vineyard experience. We do this by empowering our carefully selected network of distributors, retailers, and restaurateurs with meaningful communication, a relentless commitment to wine education, and unparalleled customer service.
Volio Imports is committed to helping preserve the environment for future generations–not only for us, but also for our supplier, distributor, retail, restaurant, and consumer partners. By offsetting all of our carbon emissions from 2019 onward, we hope to inspire others in the wine industry to do the same. Since our founding in 2007, we have focused on representing multi-generational estates who have the utmost respect for the land they farm and use to produce wine. The majority of our suppliers practice sustainable, organic, and biodynamic farming and winemaking.
“The wine industry is so deeply rooted in the environment that we feel it is our obligation to engage thoughtfully and impactfully in sustainability. As a wine importer, a lot of Volio’s business involves shipping large quantities of heavy wine across the world, which produces a significant volume of CO2. Partnering with Carbonfund.org will allow us to be carbon neutral as a business and to offset every bottle of wine that we bring across the Atlantic.” – Charles Lazzara, Volio Imports President and Founder
