Dates to remember

April 5th

On this day, we'll be celebrating Willy Chirino's birthday. I offer a toast with Cubanisimo wine to a great great musician, but most importantly, to a great champion for restoring democracy to Cuba.

April 13th

Cubanisimo Wines will be hosting a wine tasting in Miami, Florida.

As a proud Cuban-American, I always go out of my way to help out “my gente”. Reading Mauricio Collada’s story, I was touched not only because of his achievements as a neurosurgeon, but his ability to do something totally different than what he does professionally. I’ve grown to be cautious of one-track minded people, and to enjoy the company of those who have multiple hobbies. They are just much more fun to be around. In addition, Mauricio’s winemaking business employs his wife and daughter. There is nothing more wonderful and honorable than providing employment to your loved ones. I have tried Cubanisimo wines repeatedly in the past, and I found them to be outstanding – especially the Pinot Noir. My wine-connoisseur friends, who are not Cuban, have been just as impressed by these wines as I have. Daughter Cristina Collada also has provided outstanding customer service when arranging the shipment of the wines to Virginia. I am so impressed by the Collada enterprise that I wear the shirt with the Cubanisimo logo to all kinds of social events. This way, I market the wines and show the world that, when everything is said and done, I am a proud Cubanisimo.
