Daisy Penzo

Founder and CEO Tuscany Wines Import

was born in Rome, Italy, and moved to South Florida at a young age. Most of my professional career has been dedicated to the promotion of fine Italian wines, Italian culture, and its unique gastronomy. My father was an importer of Italian wines and served as the biggest inspiration for my business. I was blessed to learn hands-on from him, traveling to different wine regions and trade shows. This exposure, coupled with his untimely passing, fueled my passion to continue his legacy and carve out my career in wine import and sales. In early 2020, on the brink of the COVID pandemic, I started my business, Tuscany Wines Import. I took a huge leap and became a federally licensed wine importer in the U.S.

Aside from growing up in the wine world, you could say I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing from Florida Atlantic University and have passed various wine exams, including the Italian Wine Specialist course with the North American Sommelier, the Italian Wine Scholar with the Wine Scholars Guild, and the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines with the highest score of distinction.

Today, Tuscany Wines Import excels in bridging the connection from the small Italian vineyard to the U.S. consumer table. My team and I execute marketing strategies that sell. We target wholesale partners who wish to work with a carefully curated selection of Italian wines that can flesh out their portfolio or better cater to their customer needs.
