About Alfonso Cevola
Alfonso Cevola is a third generation Italian American. He was born in a vineyard in California, raised in and around his grandfather’s vineyard, where he had first exposure to the grape and the vine. Living in Italy as a youth gave Alfonso the opportunity to work in his Italian relative’s vineyards in the summer and during selected harvests. Making the move to Texas in 1978, Alfonso made wine in the early 1980’s in North Texas where he was a Gold Medal-winning winemaker in the Texas Wine Competition in 1982. By then, he had already traveled extensively in Italy and the other wine producing regions of the world, including France, Germany, Portugal, South America, California, Oregon, Washington, Texas & New Zealand. Alfonso works for the Glazers Family of Companies, based in Texas, as the Italian Wine Director. He is the “ambassador” who translates the Italian experience (and its importance) and helps define, communicate and reinforce the Italian wine message, both inside his company and in the community. Alfonso is a Certified Specialist in Wine and a Special Contributor to the Dallas Morning News and The Well fed Network (http://wellfed.net/ ) His Wine Blog, On the Wine Trail in Italy ( www.acevola.blogspot.com/ ) is widely read.
He also makes a mean Eggplant Parmigiano.
