About Us

Hand-picked wines from around the world

Zambuni Wines, an innovative wine importer and distributor based in Deep River, Connecticut, is focused on bringing unusual, hand-picked yet approachable wines to the U.S. market. Our portfolio of wines will initially cover wines from Italy, South Africa, France, Spain, Croatia, and Slovenia. We look for wines that are of intrinsically high quality irrespective of the price point – with all of our selections we like to say that ‘the truth is in the glass’ – just taste them and encounter thrillingly distinctive and pleasurable wines.  Our goal is to look just that bit harder for wines that are off the beaten track and which offer both good value for money and unqualified enjoyment.

Richard Zambuni has spent decades visiting and tasting with producers across Europe, initially to buy wines for personal consumption, and now he’s building on that knowledge to find delicious wines to bring to the market in Connecticut.

Jennifer Zambuni has also travelled widely in the wine-producing areas of Europe and has run her own HR consulting business since 2006. She brings her entrepreneurial spirit to operations and sales at Zambuni Wines.

Zambuni Wines acts as the U.S. master importer for many of the domains we import. The company also acts as a wine distributor in the state of Connecticut. Our first five domains are Fruscalzo from the Friuli in northeast Italy, Sutor (Mitja Lavrencic) from the Vipava Valley in Slovenia, Migliarina Wines and Julien Schaal, also from South Africa, and Bodegas Navajas from La Rioja in Spain. We have recently added some top South African wines from Botanica, Big Flower, and Crystallum.
