During the past few months we've spoken with winemakers and wineries especially the women in wine. This time we shift gears and talk with the people who bring the wines from around the world to America. One such person is Brian Larky.In 1989 Brian moved back to the U.S. after five years as winemaker at the prestigious Italian estate Ca’ del Bosco. Wanting to bring Italy’s finest wines to American tables at affordable prices, he founded Dalla Terra Importers in 1990. Before working in Italy Brian earned a U.C. Davis Fermentation Sciences degree and held production jobs in Napa Valley wineries such as Far Niente and Domaine Chandon. So the next time you taste a fine Italian wine just say "bravo" to Brian Larky
