Owner & CEO

Born in Angola (Portuguese West Equatorial Africa), in 1969, Rui "Eduardo" Bastos Amaro, lived in Portugal until 1991, year in which, he emigrated into the United States. After living in Colorado for five years and after several touristic visits to the Napa and Sonoma valleys, he decided to try the wine industry and in 1996, he started to work for Pechiney Cork and Seal and settled in Napa. For his aptitude, he was subsequently hired by two additional suppliers within a 13 year time period. He is known in the industry as a very well versed and multi-talented individual and someone that is always willing to help and a great source for packaging information. He is passionate, driven and with a tremendous willingness to make sure that all of his customers and friends are always completely satisfied with his advise and support. He is married, the father of three phenomenal boys, an amateur winemaker, olive oil and sea salt importer, avid soccer fan, loves the ocean, family, friends -- and all combined with great food and wine (if possible)
