We are very prooud of our on line wine-shop .That's why we want to introduce ourselfs …
We are Marco and Tonino Terminiello, brothers. We own 'O Canonico restaurant 1898 and the wine-shop Italian Wine Selection
Marco is the nose and the palate of our e-commerce, no bottle can arrive in our cellar without the passage in his glass. Its judgement is insindacable. I could tell that I trust him more than myself: infact I like to say that he is able to interpret my tastes and suggests me always the best wine for each moment. He educated me, to the wine world .His passion for the wine was born many years ago.
He attended somelier’ s course in 1988, when he was only 19 years old, when to price and to valutate wine it was not a fashion style like today. Since he was young, round the years ’80, he went around Italian cellars discovering our territory’s wines. In those days he has met , personally all the most important italian wine producers ; and this contacts still allow us to have all the rare, peculiar and limited produced , wines.
From this several "wine exursions " emerged the strong persuasion that, Italian wine, is second to none. From here than we chose to offer a wide choice of all the Italian Wines carefully selected, in the restaurant first, and than in our e-commerce only the best Italian Wine. !
Marco deals about selection of wines and about relation with producers and suppliers. After wine, his strong passion are cakes, and Naples football team. He attended an high pastry making course in Switzerland and in our family’ s dinner he uses ourselves to experiment his inventions. And I would like to specify, it is always a pleasure…
Tonino is the front-man of our business, right attention for the details in clothing, perfect personal care, and always ready to smile at every day life… In business he deals abut public relations and marketing, also because of his economical studies. He has always been sensible to innovation and the new technologies: I have carried him in the world of wine.
From his point of view, he has a strong care of details and in searching new, aspects of his character that come also from our training. Our father in fact educated us to search for quality products, and to take care in details in relation with customers.
Since we were young for example, before going to school we had to pass in our family bar, to set up the shop windows.... Tonino has always been a lovers of sweet life : he likes best drinks, good food and best smoke.
It is difficult see him without an original cuban cigar between his fingers. When he is not around I know everytime where he is: on board of our Sorrentine crop where he has just a few hours free.
