Growing an Italian Winery in America

The Story

The Astoria winery was founded by the Polegato family in 1987 with the sole mission of producing the highest quality still and sparkling wines.

Astoria sought out the import services of Prestige Beverage Group in 2008 in an effort to build a long-term partnership here in the USA.
