Armando De Zan

ARMANDO
DE ZAN

Armando – generous, charismatic, and hardworking – shares his family’s winemaking passions and continues its traditions. It was his entrepreneurial acumen and experience, however, that fueled the vision to directly import his family’s wines into the United States. He founded Arel Group Wine & Spirits, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia, together with his wife, Elviana. Armando’s hands-on approach means he travels extensively to promote our wines and the Italian wine industry in general.

Mission Statement

Quality has been defining the spirit and core values of the Candoni De Zan family for over one and a half centuries. Experience, knowledge, and commitment have marked our work over the years, in addition to sound stewardship and environmental practices relating to the territories in which the family has operated.

We work passionately and tirelessly to produce high quality wines that we ourselves drink, and which we are proud to share with our consumers. The strong sense of family that characterizes Italians, fuels our commitment to making wines that are affordable and have easy drinking appeal.

However, it is also our wish for each bottle of wine – from its content to the packaging – to reflect the cultural wealth behind the Made in Italy mark, founded on centuries of Italians making things beautifully and with care. We want to deliver emotional value to our consumers, so that when they drink any one of our wines, they will feel they are experiencing a moment of Italian culture, warmth, and elegance.
