Retail and Restaurants

Our family owned business is solely focused on bringing high end, small production Italian wines to our restaurant and specially retail customers. Our passion is finding hidden gems throughout every region of Italy and bringing them to you! After having, in many cases, never been tasted in the United States before, we get tremendous satisifcation when these wines ultimately flourish. We spend an equal amount of time developing relationships with valued customers that share our passion for hand crafted, hard to find wines with excellent price/quality ratios. These wines are made by producers that demonstrate quality, care and an unmatched attention to detail at every step of the process- from planting through harvest until the wine is bottled and shipped. 


The Aventine Hill portfolio can be found in the finest retail stores and restaurants throughout Connecticut and in selected markets in New York. Aventine Hill is federally licensed to import our wines throughout the country and to distribute produts in Connecticut and New York. Our selections extend well beyond typical (but still beloved) grapes like Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio. Expeditions to Italy and the continual extension of our "family" there have provided us unique wines from near extinct grapes like Cococciola and Lacrima di Morro D'Alba, grapes that are fun to say like Gaglioppo and Garganega and the grapes that are indigenous and unique like Pelaverga and Ruche. 


If you are an existing customer, we thank you for your support and partnership and welcome the opportunity to expand our relationship. If you are a new customer, we look forward to a tasting where we can fully introduce you to our portfolio and welcome you to the family! 


In Vino Veritas!
