Ep. 1965 Dominic Zucchetto | Wine, Food & Travel With Marc Millon

Welcome to episode 1965 of the Italian Wine Podcast, Wine, Food & Travel With Marc Millon. Today, he is interviewing Dominic Zucchetto. They discuss the aperitivo culture in Italy and the UK, as well as the distillation processes for spirits like Grappa and Gin, particularly from Beniamino Maschio. As the company's export manager, Dominic also shared his insights into the drinks industry.

More about today’s guest:

Born in London but raised in Italy in a small village called Quero near Valdobbiadene, I first entered the wine & spirits world during my latter school years through harvesting in order to earn some money. This initial interest in wine making, followed by my appreciation of the finished product, convinced me to unite what I was studying at school (economics) with this new passion, and I decided that I wanted to become a sales agent, and having had the good fortune of being raised in an English speaking family, it had to be for foreign markets.

After a 5 year experience in a small winery in Valdobbiadene as the only employee where I was involved in the entire production process, therefore acquring great experience and knowledge, it was time to move on and follow my ambition of becoming a sales agent. For the following 6 years I worked in the export department for a larger company that owned not only 2 wineries but also a distillery, and that is where I also started to get passionate about the unique world of Spirits.

Last year I was contacted by the Beniamino Maschio company as they were looking for a new Export Sales Manager and I decided to accept the offer, taking into consideration the career opportunity but also the incredible portoflio that the company offers and that today I am extremely proud to represent.
