Launched in Napa Valley in Fall 2019, rock paper scissors wine imports is a growing portfolio of small-production, low-intervention wines from Italy. Founded by Sicilian and Sicilian-American husband + wife duo, Federico Parlagreco + Ashley Taranto, who champion winemakers dedicated to producing authentic wines.
Rock Paper Scissors Wine Imports condemns racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, violence and hate. We stand alongside those who are fighting for equality and social justice.
We will always support worker-owned businesses, women in wine, the BIPOC community, the LGBTQIA+ community, fair labor practices and sustainability.
Our company values and emphasizes transparency and we act conscientiously, always thinking about the impact of our decisions.
Natural winemakers are our partners, and we share the common goals of working with organic or biodynamically grown grapes and adding nothing in the cellar in terms of commercial yeast, preservatives or other additives. As stewards of the land, our winemakers seek to create the best wine possible with the smallest impact on the environment, all while inspiring social responsibility within their own communities.
We are proud to cultivate genuine relationships with our winemakers. We make educated decisions and push the boundaries of responsible sourcing. We inform our buyers about the true cost of wine and advocate for a positive impact on sustainability.
Thank you for your support.
