MM28 - Donny Mellozzi: Co-Founder of Ascoli Wines and Spirits

Donny loves food and wine. Growing up in a Montreal Italian household, he learned to appreciate food culture at a young age. He started making his own wine in college using the methods his grandparents taught him. However, being detail-driven and somewhat of a perfectionist, he experimented with new techniques that would increase the quality of his homemade wine. His passion for wine has been growing ever since.

Eventually, Donny and his wife decided to start importing wine from Italy. In order to stand out, they tend to partner with vineyards that do small batch productions and offer rare grape varietals. This has allowed them to offer something unique to the Quebec market.

At the time of recording this podcast episode, Lucky Loush had about 1,000 YouTube subscribers . It took him over a year to reach this goal but his patience and perseverance is finally paying off. As of July 2018, he surpassed the 20,000 subscriber mark.
