Meet Marco

Wine is a story, bottled. It’s a tale of grapes, of producers, of terroir, of ideas…

And the story is Marco’s thing. Italian sommelier and ex-wine merchant Marco Castelanelli knows the story behind every bottle he opens. He probably knows some of the story’s characters too. That’s how he brings each glass to life. That’s Club Vino.

 Whether tasting, entertaining clients or developing a restaurant menu, the story is what defines your experience.

Tell me and I’ll forget, Show me and I’ll remember, Involve me and I’ll understand.  -Confucius

With Marco, you’ll understand.
