Dominic founded Vinifera Imports in Chicago in the late 70's. His philosophy has always been to share with the American people the best artisan wines that Italy can offer. Dominic's ability to identify the finest wines has never failed him. Among some of the brands he has imported are Gaia, Valdicava, Fontodi, Braida, Pelissero, Canalicchio di Sopra, Giuseppe Rinaldi, Felsina, Michele Satta, Brigaldara to mention a few.

Dominic has always believed that some of Italy's finest wines require patience and age to best express themselves. He has been collecting and storing many of these wines in his temperature controlled warehouses so that they are able to be purchased and enjoyed at their prime.


Growing up in the small town of Bergamo, near Lake Como, Italy, Donato Scotti's roots were planted from a young age for his future career as a chef. Now the executive chef of his own eponymous Donato Enoteca in Redwood City, CA, Scotti's dream of opening his own restaurant with true and honest contemporary Italian cuisine has become a reality. It is a place where he creates a weekly-changing menu reminiscent of his childhood days, filled with artisanal ingredients, seasonal California farmer's market produce and authentic Italian hospitality.

Scotti's approach consists of keeping dishes simple, yet delectable, and allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves, always attune to maintaining a balance in flavor. Donato has created a special Tuscan inspired menu' exclusively for this event!
