Zancanella Importing was founded in 2000 by Greg Zancanella, a longtime figure on the Portland, Oregon wine scene. His early focus was on small estates from Italy and France, and though the company has grown, this dedication to ‘real’ wine has remained.

From The Portland Business Journal, January, 2001

“….Greg Zancanella, whose grandfather and uncle are known as some of the first people to import Italian culinary delights into the city, recently started his own wine distributorship.

…Since starting his distributorship last year, Zancanella Importing Co. has compiled a selection of 100 wines for about 60 customers. Zancanella waited out a noncompete clause tied to a job he left with Columbia Distributing in 1998 prior to starting the business.”
