Established in 2018.
Solo Vino was conceived during a recent trip to Italy, where John Michael became fully immersed in the power of community & hospitality. The Italian way of life is very much based on the ritual of a shared meal, a bottle of wine; connecting & recuperating from the rigors of everyday life around a table, with friends, family, and strangers (among which there is very little distinction). Upon return home, he dedicated himself to sharing this experience. Inspired by the abundance of local makers & farmers, JM decided to open the doors of his Catskill studio, transformed to embody those Italian ideals. In these divisive times, the revitalization of this community is paramount. The formation of Solo Vino is meant to act as a unifier, a pacifier, and like the Italians say, “tutto finisce a tarallucci e vino” – literally translated as “it all ends in cookies and wine”, but conversationally, is an expression that simply means, everything is going to be ok. Around our table and yours.
