More about today’s guest

Charles Lazzara started Volio Imports in 2007, at the age of 25, with modest intentions of promoting undiscovered, high quality wine producers from Italy back in Colorado. The sale of Volio Distribution in 2017 allowed Charles to dedicate his time and energy to Volio Imports’ strategic expansion to becoming a leading National Importer of Italian wines, as well as spend more time with his amazing wife (Angela), two young boys (Lorenzo and Tommaso), and daughter (Sofia).  As the Founder & CEO of Volio, Charles is always out networking with customers, wholesalers, and engaging Volio’s 30+ wineries throughout Italy.
