Gli Angoli del Gusto Loison LUISE VINI – Piove di Sacco, Padua

November 30, 2018


Agostino Luise, you’re a second-generation member of the family that founded Luise Vini. Have you always been involved in your family’s wine distribution business?

Yes, I have. My father started the business in 1979 and I was immediately drafted into it out of necessity I remember spending my holidays helping my father out and learning the trade. It later became my passion and my whole life.


Who are your customers?

We began as distributors in the food service industry, so we have been doing business with restaurants, bars and night clubs. A good portion of our customers has been buying from us for decades.






How has the role of the distributor evolved in recent years to meet the challenges of large-scale distribution and online sales?

I see the role of the distributor as someone who’s always on the lookout for new products, such as winemakers with small or medium-sized productions, at times with limited production capacity, that are still able to offer high-quality, unique items, setting them apart from more renowned brands.

Pusateri's discovers craft baking

December 17, 2017

These days, the news that Panettone is winning over the taste of U.S. customers is becoming common knowledge: Panettone is increasingly known as a "Classic Italian Cake" and is appreciated all-year round, as a product that is not necessarily consumed only around Christmastime.


Our Canadian counterparts are not too far behind and the constant demand for Panettone proves it. Pusateri’s a luxury food hall based in Toronto, went to Italy to learn more about and to "immortalize" the artisan production of Loison Panettone.


Pusateri’s is not your ordinary shop: established in 1963, it offers high-end gourmet products in its two food halls and four store locations.
