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.
