Vinifera Imports is the preeminent importer of premium Italian wines in America.

Founded in 1979 as a one-office operation in Chicago, IL, by Dominic Nocerino, Vinifera has expanded to include a national Distribution network, serving retail shops and restaurants in all major commercial markets, with over fifteen branch offices.

We remain a family-owned and operated business in an industry dominated by conglomerates. Since our inception we’ve chosen to invest in what’s inside the bottle, with a clear vision of quality as we promote boutique wines of distinction. At every price point, our wines consistently offer outstanding value.

Importing the best of Italy as we have for over thirty years, our holdings are unsurpassed. Maintained at our 50,000 square foot, temperature-controlled warehouse facility in New York, our portfolio offers an unparalleled depth and range of choice, the best of the best vintages.

With the richest variety of individual wine styles, local climates, and indigenous grape varietals, Italy remains the most climate-diverse wine-growing nation in the world. With our wines, you could drink for a lifetime.
