#VeroCommunity

We are a community of producers, merchants, businesses and wine and food lovers,
who are inspired by passion and value authenticity.

We believe that sourcing genuine products is important for our health, our planet
and our wallet
because when you find the good stuff you become the good stuff.
Vero in Italian means real, and that is what we are in its most raw and natural meaning.

The best moments happen around the table, sharing delicious products and stories
that make the simple things that much better.

Join us, we’ve got the goods!

Sheila Donohue

Founder, CEO & Sommelier

I'm a New Yorker living in Italy for 20 years. After becoming a
sommelier and getting to know hundreds of smaller producers with great tasting authentic products, but mainly unknown around the US, I decided to start 'spreading the love' by bringing these hidden gems from anywhere in the world direct to people who want to explore and experience more out of wine, food and life.

Testimonials

I met Sheila Donohue at Vinitaly’s Italian Wine Ambassador course, learned she’s importing wine from Italy with a business based out of my town of Ventura, AND she had a few BIODYNAMIC wines made by a woman making it perfect for Women’s History Month, I was sure once again I was set.

Very educational. I enjoy feeling smart when I drink wine; all the information helps me learn what I like about the wine.
