Dominic Nocerino

     Dominic Nocerino emigrated from Naples to Chicago in 1971 and soon began selling wine on the streets of the Southside. In 1979,  he opened his own company, Vinifera Imports. Today, he has a national distribution network serving retail shops, boutique wine stores and restaurants in all major commercial markets across 30 states. Vinifera operates a 50,000-square-foot temperature-controlled warehouse in Ronkonkoma, New York.

In 1997, Dominic purchased Sant’Elena Winery in the Friuli. Overtime, he significantly raised the quality of the wines; as attested to, by Wine Journalists and measured by the increased demand on the part of consumers. In Italian, Dominic’s name means “Golden”. His impact on the establishing of premium Italian wines in the United States is extensive. His wine knowledge has no limits and yet the first thing people notice is his humility.
