More about today’s guest

Trend spotter, brand builder, idea generator and ferocious entrepreneur, Antonio Bertone brings over 30 plus years of passion and experience in brand management and marketing expertise to everything he does. With a proven track record for elevating brands from local to global consumer consciousness, Bertone began his consumer acquisition journey back in the early nineties with his record shop in Milford, Massachusetts and putting on punk rock matinees in the clubs around Boston, Massachusetts. His style is known to be unorthodox but has a long list of wins to back up his methodology.

In addition to his past work at WHOOP, Bertone currently serves on the board of Narragansett Beer. Bertone is also co-founder of Alileo, a Sicilian boxed natural wine brand. In its first year of production Alileo was awarded three medals by the Decanter World Wine Awards 2023, the world’s leading wine competition, and has received countless accolades from national wine media. Created by husband and wife team Antonio Bertone and Alexandra Drane, Alileo is produced in partnership with Bertone’s family in Sicily and imported to the United States. A family endeavor, Bertone’s cousin lovingly crafts the wine in the seaside village of Marsala, Italy, also famous for its Marsala Wine and Sea Salt production. Bertone’s family oversees the winemaking and logistics for the brand.
