-- George Fasciano, a newcomer to the low country, is a current resident of Kiawah Island of South Carolina. Kiawah is an island paradise where he chose to retire after 45 years of service in the New Jersey school system.
It did not take very long before George Fasciano realized that paradise is not paradise when you live there. So soon after, with connections he made at dinner parties on the islands, Fasciano put together an investor group with an idea to create a company called Boutique Wine Imports.
This company routinely travels to South American countries and visits smaller family size wineries in search of the perfect vineyard. “By making a connection with each vineyard owner, he is able to get a better understanding of how they process and if they have mastered their trade”.
As with every new company, time, money and having passion is what breeds success. With over 25 wineries already under contract, local distributors are scrambling over the company's new found success.
