Mark Crittenden, co-owner
Mark’s passion for wine began after moving to Sicily when he was 19 years old. He lived there for 5 years during his time in the Navy as an Air Traffic Controller and became immersed in the Sicilian wine culture. After visiting many wonderful family-owned wineries the region had to offer, Mark developed friendships with many of the owners. These cherished friendships gradually turned into business relationships, and over 10 years later, he is still pursuing his dream of working in the wine industry. In Mark’s free time, he enjoys cycling, camping, and crafting gourmet meals in the kitchen to pair with his favorite wines.
