The wine is made by the Latentia winery in Italy, but distribution is through Mack & Schühle in the U.S. Mack & Schühle is located in Miami, Florida and in Stuttgart, Germany. Founded in 1939, they are the leading wine distributor in German-speaking markets.
Mack & Schühle both produces their own wines and distribute wines, in some cases—I am not sure about this one—they have direct shareholding in the winery. As they note, Mack & Schühle does wine from the grape vine to the store shelf. Latentia is part of the Mack & Schühle Group, but is not listed as a joint venture. Latentia Winery SpA produces and owns wineries from Puglia, Veneto, and Friuli Giulla regions in Italy.
