Italy–>Maine Wine Connection

The Food & Dining section in today’s Press Herald includes an interview with Paul Turina, a Yarmouth man who imports wines produced by his family in Italy. According to the article, Turina wines are on the menu at Paciarino, Hugo’s, and Walter’s and can be purchased at Rosemont and RSVP.

At first, he brought just enough wine to the States to satisfy family and friends. Now he travels to Italy once or twice a year to visit his family and do business with them, trying to find ways to get the word out about their wines on this side of the Atlantic.

Johnny’s Bistro in Falmouth is featuring Turina wine at a dinner on May 17.
