Spain & Italy Portfolio
Lisa d’Adamo, Wine representative
Our family established Folio Fine Wine Partners in 2004 with the goal of bringing exceptional and distinctive wines to American consumers. Today, we are an importer, fine wine agency and producer of quality wines. We manage a diverse portfolio that spans 6 countries, 3 continents and every premium price point, and we’re fortunate to work with family wineries who share our passion for making great wine.
Wine has been our family business for 4 generations. It began with Cesare Mondavi, an Italian immigrant, who established a grape growing business in Lodi, California during Prohibition. Our Napa Valley roots were established in 1943 when the family purchased the historic Charles Krug winery. Cesare’s son, Robert, later started his own winery with Michael, his eldest son. Robert Mondavi Winery helped establish California as the premier winegrowing region it is today. Now the legacy continues with Folio Fine Wine Partners.

My love of wine started very early on. At this point in my life, the wines I started with, I would be too ashamed to mention but they were the gateway to a lifelong joy and passion of the vine. I am a Chicago girl with a marketing major from DePaul University. After several years of a sales career in health and safety I decided it was time to pair my love of wine with my business experience. Inspired by a few short trips to Paris, I wrote a business plan while attending classes at the Chicago Wine School. Once both were completed, I executed my plan to open a wine retail boutique and wine bar in a suburb of Chicago. After ten successful years I sold my business and moved to the desert. Once in Arizona, I continued working in the industry. First as a Sales Specialist and most recently as a brand manager. I am thrilled to utilize all my experience to date to work with the outstanding team at Folio Wine Partners.
