Vittorio Marzotto

Years of Participation

Since childhood, Vittorio Marzotto has been fascinated by wine and its culture, thanks to the passion and talents of his great-grandfather, Count Gaetano Marzotto, who established the first Italian agri-business group that included agricultural and livestock, glass container production and winemaking in the Eastern countryside of Venice, Italy (Gruppo Santa Margherita) in 1935. His great-grandmother, Margherita Lampertica Marzotto, is for whom the Santa Margherita winery was named.
While attending the University of Verona, Vittorio had the opportunity to meet people from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds, and developed a love for travel and international relations. He also undertook wine studies in both Italy and abroad, including 6 months in Australia in various wine regions, learning about various winemaking styles and understanding of grape varietals and terroir.
Vittorio worked as the International Export Manager for Gruppo Santa Margherita from 2007-2011, overseeing Eastern Europe. In 2011 he moved to New York City to take on the role as National Brand Ambassador for Ca’ del Bosco from 2011-2015. He moved to Miami in 2015 to help open the company’s United States’ import division, Santa Margherita USA, as Director of Business Development and works with all ten wineries in the portfolio.
Vittorio has served as an educator and speaker for countless consumer and trade events and is passionate about sharing all aspects of Italian wine, food, culture, and lifestyle. He lives in Miami Beach with his wife and twin daughters. In his spare time outside of wine, he enjoys travel, cooking and water sports.
