IMPERO WINE DISTRIBUTORS VIRGINIA is a wholesale wine distributor located near Alexandria, Virginia. A family run, Tuscan winery behind a family run, Virginia wholesaler. Two worlds, one desire....to offer exceptional quality wine with passion and enthusiasm.
Roberto D'Onofrio (13 years of experience in the wine business) and Enzo Papi (a very well-known Italian businessman and owner of a beautiful winery in the hills of Tuscany) have two very different backgrounds but are guided by the same passion for wine and together we decided to open a wine distribution company in the United States. One of the key advantages of this partnership lies in the ability to have full control of the product, from the vines, through to the production and on to the final distribution.
Of course we couldn’t just offer wines from the Bolgheri area of Tuscany where the Pakravan-Papi winery is located as we wanted to offer a comprehensive selection of Italian wines to our US customers/partners and so we entered into a joint venture with a well-established Import company called Caput Mundi, based in Florida.
At Impero, we pride ourselves on being able to offer excellent quality, fair-priced wines that are exclusive to independents and our mission is to transmit our passion and enthusiasm for wine to our customers.
We believe it is not just what is in the bottle that counts. What is just as important is our commitment to our customers and the relationships we form with them, promising to always go beyond what is expected of us.
