Domenico Valentino is a family owned and operated distributor of fine Italian wines in the state of New York. We supply sustainable wines to the best restaurants and retailers in the New York City area and beyond.

Our regional Italian wines are made in typical style using native varieties. We look for expertly made wines produced without unnecessary intervention that represent the best characteristics of their varieties and terroir. We are exploring Italy through wine.

ARE YOUR WINES ORGANIC/BIODYNAMIC?
The wines we import are made by farmers first, farmers who happen to be great winemakers. Regardless of their certifications, allegiances or memberships in movements they are all passionate stewards of their land. They understand agronomy and work their vineyards with energy, enthusiasm, creativity and intelligence. They farm sustainably because that’s the only way to guarantee a home and a future for themselves and their children.
By working sustainably they incorporate organic practices in their individual way, some follow biodynamic principles. Each wine is the vision of the individual producer created with respect for the land and local tradition.
DO YOU SELL DIRECT TO CONSUMER?
We do not, we are strictly a distributor that sells exclusively to the trade. Ask for our wines at your favorite local wine shop and at restaurants across the city. Drop us a line if you would like to know where to find a specific wine. If you are a consumer living outside of New York City and would like to purchase our wines for delivery, let us know and we will connect you with one of our retailers that can ship directly to you.
